(engl, ger)


I'm currently working in the AcqVA (Acquisition, Variation, Attrition) research group, a joint project by NTNU and UiT. I investigate movement asymmetries in the context of verbal ellipsis in Germanic languages.

I received my PhD from Leipzig University, where I worked on Determiner sharing in German (thesis PDF). I have also worked on tough-movement in German and English, as well as on the syntax and semantics of tense and aspect. Specifically, 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).
