I am a theoretical linguist as well as a fieldworker. I received my PhD in 2015 and am currently employed as a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of Tübingen.

Broadly speaking, I investigate how meaning emerges from the interaction of syntactic structure, lexical information, composition principles and context. I am particularly interested in how far this interaction is subject to crosslinguistic variation, and in the repercussions of this variation for first language acquisition and processing.

Topics I have worked on include the crosslinguistic representation of scalarity in the grammar, the acquisition of comparison constructions in English and German, the architecture of tense and modality at Logical Form, as well as the grammar of alternatives.
