María Cristina Cuervo did her BA in Linguistics at the University of Buenos Aires and took studies in generative grammar at the Universidad Nacional del Comahue, Argentina. She received her PhD in Linguistics from MIT. Her research interests include syntax and morphology at the level of argument/event structure and their relation with semantics (with particular focus on dative arguments, applicatives, objects, clitics and the construction of verbal meanings), and the acquisition of morphosyntax in Spanish as a first and second language.
