self-description I am doing a PhD in theoretical linguistics, working from the perspective of "alternative generative theories" like Culicover and Jackendoff's Simpler Syntax (but I am also interested in construction grammar and cognitive linguistics). My interests include syntax and its interfaces with morphology, semantics and information structure. As for languages I have worked mainly with data from Greek, South Slavic and Balkan languages, and with Romance. I attended the EGG summer school in Wroclaw, two years ago and it was a great experience, both because of the quality of the courses and because of the relaxed atmosphere of the school. I hope I will be able to make it this year again.
