||I am presently an Assistant Lecturer with the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest, and for the last 4 years have
had an ongoing collaboration with the English Language Department within the University of Bucharest, which I graduated in 2002. Since then I have taken my Master's degree in American Studies, but given my propensity for linguistics throughout university, I decided to embark on a PhD in linguistics, namely in the field of formal pragmatics and DRT. At present I conduct the pragmatics seminars for the 3rd year students majoring in English within the University, but feel the need to strenghten my field of knowledge as far as syntax is concerned, so as to have a clearer view on things when plunging into the study of DRT. I truly believe that the two-week lectures at the EGG will help me strenghten my stance in this field, as well as in other related domains, and I hope you will consider me as a prospective attendant.
