Biography

I hold a PhD in Linguistic, Literary and Philological Sciences from the University of Padova (specialisation: Linguistics). In my PhD project I studied speech rhythm in Italian and Croatian monolingual and bilingual speech. Besides acoustic phonetics, my research interests are also bilingualism, didactics, pragmatics and endangered languages. Currently I am a Teaching assistant and Erasmus coordinator at the Faculty of Interdisciplinary, Italian and Cultural Studies at the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula (Croatia). I teach didactics of Italian language and literature as well as general and Italian linguistics. Moreover, I am the vice-director of the Research center for linguistic and cultural heritage of Istria. I wrote various articles on the Italian language spoken in Istria and co-edited the monograph “Studi filologici e interculturali tra traduzione e plurilinguismo // Intercultural and philological studies between translation and plurilingualism” (Aracne editrice, 2016).
