Interests: Pragmatics, semantics, construction grammar, semantic typology, event semantics, language production models
Under the supervision of PI Juergen Bohnemeyer, I am a research assistant on the Causality Across Languages (CAL) project. CAL investigates the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic properties of verbal representations of causal chains across different languages.
