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, 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 .
