About Me

I am a PhD student at the Universität Potsdam, Germany. My recent research interests have been focused on experimental and theoretical approaches to semantics and pragmatics, namely in the area of exhaustivity inferences in it-clefts, presupposition acommodation and presupposition failure, and lexical reinterpretation. As of July 2017 I work in the C02 project "Limits of Variability in Interpretation" [archived] (in SFB 1287 "Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Grammatical, and Social Aspects" [archived]) and serve on the MGK board as the PhD representative. The C02 project focuses on the grammatical, cognitive and communicative factors underlying variability in semantic interpretation. Previously, from June 2014 to July 2017, I worked in the "Exhaustivity in It-Clefts" (ExCl) research group as part of the XPrag.de priority program, for which I also served on the Steering Committee.

Alongside my research I volunteer to proofread for the open access publishers Language Science Press.
