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