My main interests are in computational linguistics, experimental psycholinguistics and semantics.

I work especially in Natural Language Generation (NLG). I'm particularly interested in models of reference production and generation, data-to-text NLG, and temporal coherence in narrative.

I'm also interested in morphology from a computational and a psycholinguistic point of view.
