I am a PostDoc at the German department at the University of Tübingen (Department Webpage), specialising in formal semantics and pragmatics (and their interfaces). I am part of the Athene-Program for female early career researchers for the period 2017-2019.

Current work: Slides for my talk at SuB23

My research interests in theoretical semantics and pragmatics comprise, but are not limited to, discourse particles, qualifying expressions (German 'als'-phrases / English 'as'-phrases), non-referential uses of personal pronouns, and genericity and its interaction with other intensional expressions.
In addition to my theoretical work, I am interested in corpus linguistic and experimental methods and how they can be applied fruitfully to semantic and pragmatic research. Most of my theoretical work is informed by corpus or experimental studies.

For more information, please see the research section.

From July 30 to August 10, 2018 I was teaching at EGG 2018. The materials for my classes can be found here: materials.
