I am a linguist.

I work at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics as professor of Syntax and Language Variation and PI of the ERC CoG project Microcontact.

I am series editor of the Language Science Press OA series Open Generative Syntax  and editor-in-chief of the Brill Series Grammars and Sketches of the Romance Languages 

I am also editor-in-chief of the new Isogloss. Open Journal of Romance Linguistics and the president of Going Romance.

My main interests are syntactic variation, syntactic change in contact, heritage language syntax,  (Italo-)Romance microvariation, and the syntax-phonology interface.
