Fields of interest

Morphology, typology, agreement and gender


I am a linguist with a special interest in morphology and typology. My current research, for which I received a Veni grant from NWO, is on the complexity and learnability of grammatical gender. In addition, I'm thinking and writing about morphology in the mental lexicon.

Teaching activities

I am working at the German Department as University Lecturer for Linguistics. Before, I've taught General Linguistics, Typology, Morphology, Psycholinguistics, Contrastive Linguistics and German at various universities throughout the Netherlands.
