Information om forskning och undervisning

My research interests lie in the distribution and evolution of linguistic diversity among closely related languages and within coherent geographic areas, with special attention to the way in which domains of language structure vary in response to the social and natural environment in which languages are used and transmitted.

My research has so far focused on the diversity and evolution of different domains of nominal morphosyntax such as nominal classification (with a specific focus on grammatical gender systems), number systems, and evaluative morphology. I have studied these grammatical phenomena both worldwide and with a focus on African languages, via qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis. At the University of Helsinki, I am part of the research team of the ERC-funded project GramAdapt, led by Kaius Sinnemäki.

My teaching experience includes BA and MA level courses in linguistic theories and methodologies, linguistic typology, and sociolinguistics.
