Short biography

 

In August 2011, I graduated from the Research Master programme in Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam, with a thesis on the cross-linguistic locus of marking of possessive NPs investigated from a Functional Discourse Grammar perspective. Currently, I am working on my PhD project, supervised by Prof. Dr. Kees Hengeveld and Dr. Eva van Lier, which investigates the role of the semantic opposition between arguments and modifiers as a predictor of morphosyntactic marking within a range of dependency relations across the world's languages. This typological research project furthermore integrates a novel typology of person markers in terms of cross-reference and agreement, based on work by Hengeveld.
