I am a linguist.
I work at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics as professor of Linguistics / Syntax and Language Variation and Chair of Linguistics, as well as head of the Linguistics section. Until June 2022, I was PI of the ERC CoG project Microcontact.
My main interests are syntactic variation, language change in contact, heritage language syntax, (Italo-)Romance microvariation, impersonal pronouns, and the syntax-phonology interface.
I am editor-in-chief of the new Isogloss. Open Journal of Romance Linguistics and president of Going Romance.
I am also 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 .
