Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki, and I am currently working on the syntax of Uralic languages from a typological, areal and contact perspective, focusing on non-finite forms. My background is in linguistic typology (the title of my doctoral dissertation was Towards a typology of participles, defended in April 2017). I have also done field work on a number of underdescribed languages including Kalmyk, Nanai, Erzya, Nivkh, Uilta, and Hill Mari. Since 2012, I have taught courses in Finiteness, Relative clauses, and Subordination.
