I am a linguist interested in investigating the grammar of sign languages in a formal approach. Over the past years, my primary focus has been on describing and analyzing syntactical-semantic aspects of Brazilian Sign Language (Libras), utilizing both corpus and elicited data.

Currently, I am a first-year PhD Candidate at UiB, working on the NONMANUAL project. This project has broadened my research interests to include a comparative perspective regarding nonmanual articulation between sign languages, including Libras.
