About me

I’m a second-year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics in Vienna. My research field is theoretical linguistics; I’m working mainly on syntax with occasional sidesteps to the syntax-semantics interface. At the moment, my main interest is the CP-domain from a typological perspective, focusing primarily on WH-constructions, cross-clausal A-dependencies and composite A’/A-probes. Additionally, I’m a research assistant in Susi Wurmbrand’s project on implicational hierarchies in clausal complementation (check out the website, we do cool stuff!)

Beyond my very theoretical field, I’m fascinated by general cognitive science, the human mind, psycholinguistics and all other things related to the question of what kind of creatures we are.

Apart from linguistics, I try to cycle around the world (in small bits at a time), run, climb, hike, ski and swim (pretty much everything as long as it is outside), teach cycling to kids and bicycle mechanics to women, try to get fluent in as many languages as possible (not very successfully, though), and am a scout group leader (:
