I am currently working on my PhD in linguistics at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. In my research, I focus on grammar theory, obligatoriness, grammaticalisation and other related language change processes. Moreover, I am also interested in the applications of evolution theory in linguistics, history of linguistic thought, and translation studies. I have taught undergraduate courses on English and German historical linguistics, introduction to linguistics, semantics, pragmatics, and Sprachbund phenomena.
