I am currently a researcher and PhD student in linguistics at the CRC 1252 “Prominence in Language” and the Institute for German Language and Literature I at the University of Cologne. I am interested in verb semantics and the design of the syntax-semantic interface. I conduct psycho- and neurolinguistic experiments with a diverse assortment of methods including eyetracking and event-related potentials. I am currently also working on pupillometry as new tool for empirical linguistic research. I am especially interested in statistical modelling of linguistic data using a large variety of data analysis tools.
