Presentation

I am Senior Researcher in Linguistics at the National Centre for Scientific Research in France (CNRS) and a member of the Academy of Europe. I specialize in the analysis of under-described and often endangered languages with a focus on language contact and bilingualism, combining corpus and psycholinguistic methods. I have conducted extensive research in the Balkans (on Romani and Balkan Slavic) and in Mexico (on Ixcatec and Romani) and am committed to open and transparent science by providing access to the original speech recordings together with the linguistic analyses.
