I am a DPhil candidate in Linguistics at the University of Oxford and Research Assistant in Corpus-Based Digital Humanities at The Alan Turing Institute within the Living with Machines project. I specialise in corpus linguistics and the syntax-semantics interface, focussing on the computational modelling and statistical analysis of historical Indo-European languages.

My DPhil thesis looks at competing finite and non-finite constructions in Early Slavic temporal subordination. Theoretically, my research is largely set within formal discourse-representation frameworks. Methodologically, it is quantitative and computational, and draws from typological variation among modern and historical languages.

I hold a BA in Russian and English from the University of Pavia (Italy), where I also received my core postgraduate training in linguistics, and an MSt in Slavonic Studies (Serbian and Early Slavic) from the University of Oxford. I have taught General Linguistics at Oxford and Digital Humanities at King’s College London. I am also Editorial Assistant for the Journal of Open Humanities Data and Fellow at RROx, the Oxford branch of the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN).
