I'm a post-doctoral researcher in the ERC-funded LeibnizDream project at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I'm also a member of the DFG-funded network Definiteness across domains.

I work on a variety of topics in a wide range of languages, including complementation, pseudo-incorporation, differential object marking, the person case constraint, person feature systems, agreement, coordination, information structure, speech acts, definiteness, and allocutivity. My work involves solutions that take the morpho-syntactic and the semantic side into account. Lately, I've been investigating the acquisition of negative indefinites, past tense, conjunction, logophoric pronouns, and generic statements.

I received my PhD from Universität Leipzig. You can find my CV here.
