I am a lecturer/researcher (Akademischer Rat) at the Linguistics department (Sprachwissenschaftliches Seminar) of the Georg-August University Göttingen. I obtained my PhD in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge (King's College).

My main research interests are in formal linguistics, more specifically syntactic and morphological theory. In addition to my formal inclinations, I am fascinated by the construction of identities (particularly the special role assigned to national ones) and the role language can play in it.

A more detailed outline of my research interests can be found in the Research section. My publications and presentations can be found under Output.

From 2013 until 2016, I was a member of the student committee of the LAGB.
