About me

In April 2023 I started my own project on Pragmatic reasoning with (non-)visual alternatives, which is part of the Priority Programme ViCom. From October 2022 to March 2023 I was replacing Prof. Dr. Malte Zimmermann (chair Semantics and Grammar Theory) at the University of Potsdam.

Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in several different projects at the Cognitive Science Department of the University of Potsdam (PI Malte Zimmermann), at Institut Jean Nicod (École Normale Supérieure) in Paris (as part of the project Between Language and Reasoning, PI Salvador Mascarenhas), and at the University of Tübingen (as part of the project ObTrEx- Obligatory Triggers -- Experimental Evidence, PI Sigrid Beck), which was part of the Priority Programme xprag.de.
