Research profile

Profile picture

I’m a doctoral researcher in the Cognitive Modeling group at the Institute of Cognitive Science, Osnabrück University, and in the Semantics and Pragmatics group at the Leibniz-Centre General Linguistics (ZAS). In my PhD, supervised by Michael Franke and Manfred Krifka, I’m investigating pragmatic prediction in incremental language interpretation, with a focus on the processing of epistemicity cues.

I’m broadly interested in the interplay between language, cognition, and interaction. I’m particularly interested in how pragmatic pressures affect the communicative strategies people use to understand one another in context. In my research I use primarily experimental methods to try and explore how such pressures shape the usage and organization of human language, e.g.:

I’m also interested in issues related to research design and methodology and data analysis.
