About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Cognitive Science Department (Linguistics Division) of the University of Potsdam, advised by Malte Zimmermann. I am investigating different information structural phenomena (questions, focus, topic...) cross-linguistically using experimental methods. My research is also part of the project "Limits of Variability in Semantic Interpretation" of the Collaborative Research Center 1287.

Before that I was a postdoctoral researcher at Institut Jean Nicod (École Normale Supérieure) in Paris as part of the project Between Language and Reasoning led by Salvador Mascarenhas, and a postdoctoral researcher in the project "ObTrEx- Obligatory Triggers -- Experimental Evidence" (led by Sigrid Beck), which was part of the Priority Programme xprag.de.
