I am a linguist interested in the sounds and sound systems occurring in natural language.
Topics I have worked on include
I received my PhD from the University of Leipzig, where I was a member of the Research Training Group IGRA.
I currently hold a position as postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) in Berlin. At ZAS, I am a member of the DoReCo team, a new initiative for a time-aligned reference corpus of lesser documented and endangered languages.
From summer 2022, I will investigate the phonetic correlates of the root-affix asymmetry from a cross-linguistic perspective within the AIRAL project. AIRAL will make use of data from DoReCo to assess the acoustic properties of complex word forms in a worldwide sample of 40 languages, with the goal of testing competing theories on phonological and morphological structure building. More information will be published close to the start date of AIRAL.
