Renato Lacerda

I'm Renato Lacerda from Brazil. I grew up in a small-to-medium city in the state of Minas Gerais (Southeast region of the country) and then moved to São Paulo to go to college – at the Universidade de São Paulo I did a BA in Portuguese Language and Linguistics and an MA in Linguistics, specializing in the Generative framework. My research has been focused on the syntax of Brazilian Portuguese, but I also have interest in other Romance languages and contrastive analysis in general – which is the reason I came to UConn.

Even though I’m a fan of Frank Sinatra and enjoy watching old movies, I always believe that the best is yet to come.
