I am a post-doctoral research fellow of English Linguistics at the Université de Neuchâtel in Switzerland. In early 2017, I received my PhD at Freie Universität Berlin for a usage-based analysis of constraints on English serial verb constructions.
My primary research interests are lexico-grammatical patterns in contemporary English and language change in Late Modern English. I investigate how usage distribution contributes to our understanding of human linguistic knowledge. While I focus more on corpus-based perspectives, I also employ experimental methods.
