I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto working on language contact in Latin America. I am currently interested in the emergence of "light" Romance prepositions in Nahuatl and their interaction with argument structure and case marking. I also work on the internal structure of titles and honorifics, as well as verb transitivity in di- and tri-transitive structures in French, Spanish, Nahuatl, and Kaqchikel.
