I'm currently a PhD candidate at the University of Leipzig. I work in the DFG-funded Koselleck research project "Syntactic structure removal - a new approach to conflicting representations" headed by Prof. Gereon Müller. I'm associated with the graduate school IGRA (Interaction of grammatical building blocks).
My interests lie in syntax and the interfaces with semantics and morphology. I have worked on tough-movement in German and English and on the syntax and semantics of tense and aspect. Concretely, I worked with Martina Martinović on biclausal progressives in the Niger-Congo language Wolof, and with my IGRA colleagues Christine Marquardt and Sören E. Tebay on the semantics of the resultative perfect in Mee (aka Ekari, Papuan).
In my dissertation, I investigate determiner sharing structures and gapping and explore the modelling of interdependent processes in minimalist syntax.
