Me

I am an postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Language Studies of the Radboud University of Nijmegen, working in the Grammar and Cognition project. My research concerns the historical development of argument marking strategies, for which I use computer simulations.

Besides, I am active in the boards of the Algemene Vereniging voor Taalwetenschap (AVT, Dutch Association for Linguistics), the Landelijke Onderzoeksschool Taalwetenschap (LOT, Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics), and the network for temporary academic personnel of the Radboud University (TRAP), for which I'm also in the works council of the university.
