Research

In my current research (leading to my PhD thesis at the Goethe University of Frankfurt and EPHE in Paris), I focus on language contact in the Caucasus, specifically between the languages Tsova-Tush (East Caucasian) and Georgian (Kartvelian). I'm also interested in reconstructing pre-stages of both language families.
