About

I am associate professor (tenured lecturer) at the UAB, where I am working on particular tasks of the funded research project "Compositionality of meaning and semantic operations at the syntax-semantics and grammar-cognition interface (COMPOSING)", headed by M. Teresa Espinal. My current research includes the pragmatics of right-dislocation, the semantics of deadjectival nominalizations, the semantics and pragmatics of exclamatives, and the role of information structure in existential constructions.
