My research interest generally are in syntax, morphology, semantics and prosody, and their respective interfaces.
Currently, I am working on the theoretical representation and explanation of German scrambling movements, ellipsis, properties of German modal particles, and question of compositional sentence type formation. My work is theoretically driven and experimentally supported.
Previous research interests included attributive structure in German and other languages, word class typologies, etc.
My teaching covers both theoretical classes and psycholinguistic topics (language acquisition, language processing, etc.) as well as some other topics (language evolution, parallels between language and music structures, etc.).
