I am a diachronic linguist, affiliated with the Department of Linguistics at Charles University. I am interested in topics that lie at the intersection of syntax/semantics and language change using quantitative corpus methods.
I obtained my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Oxford in May 2018 (titled Perception and Predication, under the supervision of Prof. Mary Dalrymple and Prof. Ash Asudeh). I was a lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam (fall 2018 & spring 2019), after which I was a post-doc at the Department of Linguistics at Charles University from April 2019 until February 2021.
At the moment I work as a Dutch linguist/language consultant for Apple.
- Constructionist/cognitive approaches to language change
- Quantitative corpus linguistics
