Currently, I am a first-year PhD student at UConn. I have done research on First Language Acquisition and Comparative Syntax. 

I got my Master of Arts in Linguistics from USP (Universidade de São Paulo), located in Brazil, where I grew up. My dissertation discusses particularities of behavior of pronouns inside PPs in Brazilian Portuguese (BP) in contrast with some Germanic languages. The dissertation also discusses how children acquiring BP deal with these pronouns.
