Research

In my research, I aim to unravel how syntax and morphology interact. I do this by investigating both teh syntactic and morphological characteristics of phenomena like possession, agreement and genitive case. At LUCL, I am part of the research group that will investigate the mysterious surrounding the semantics, the syntax and the morphology of inalienable possession. This research is funded by NWO.

Teaching activities

I teach different courses in syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, and articulatory phonetics in the French department.
