Personal profile

Diplomas

I did both my Bachelor’s Degree in Modern Languages and Literatures and my Master’s Degree in Linguistics in Brussels at Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Currently I work as a doctoral researcher at the LSFB-Lab of the University of Namur (UNamur) within the Namur Institute of Language, Text and Transmediality.

 

Introduction

My research interests lie at the intersection between linguistics and gesture studies as I compare, from a multimodal perspective, sign languages to spoken languages and the gestures produced by speakers. The data I use in my PhD project are retrieved from the LSFB Corpus and the FRAPé Corpus, a multimodal corpus of Belgian French, to which I am contributing by collecting data.

Portal presentation

  • My PhD research project, which started in 2019, is funded by an F.R.S-FNRS Research Fellow grant.
  • Thesis project: ‘Making referents seen and heard: comparing constructed action in LSFB and Belgian French’
  • In January 2022, thanks to the support of the Sofina Boël grant, I’ll go to Finland, at the University of Jyväskylä, to compare constructed action in LSFB and suomalainen viittomakieli (Finnish Sign Language).
