Mimi Eisenbruch

My DPhil research examines the interaction between speaker-designated gender-neutral language and its effects on language-internal structure in Romance, including gender resolution and agreement. More broadly, my research interests relate to all areas of Romance linguistics –particularly morphology, typology, language change, and corpus linguistics – with implications that can inform language policy, language teaching and natural language processing.

I received my MSt in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics at Balliol College, University of Oxford in 2022 and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Linguistics and French from Monash University in 2018. I have worked as a Research Assistant at Monash University on a number of interdisciplinary research projects across linguistics and political sciences. Beyond academia, I have been involved in teaching linguistics and French in secondary educational contexts.

Interdisciplinary research, for example, in anthropology, psychology and natural language processing is of great interest, and I welcome proposals for collaborative research projects across cognate fields.
