Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the relationship between semantics and grammatical variation in the world’s languages. I have conducted typological studies of complement clauses as well as language-specific grammatical studies of Danish and the Bantu language Ruuli spoken in Uganda. Currently my research interests also include second language acquisition and learning (primarily of Nordic languages).

I am an editor of Acta Linguistic Hafniensia: International Journal of Linguistics and a member of The Linguistic Circle of Copenhagen and The Linguistic Association of Finland.
