I’m a third year grad student at the Linguistics Department of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. My main research interests are in psycholinguistics and semantics/pragmatics, mostly related to discourse phenomena. Specific topics I am currently working on or am interested in are presuppositions, anaphora, additive particles, discourse particles, coherence relations, clause types, adverbials and prosody. I also started working on the processing of (Non) At-Issueness with Lyn Frazier, Brian Dillon and Chuck Clifton. (The interested reader can find brief reviews and materials in the Research section – or just send me an email.)
I received both my BA and MA degree in German Linguistics from the University of Tübingen (website only in German) under the supervision of Britta Stolterfoht (again only German). I also worked as a research assistant under her for the research project B8 of the Collaborative Research Center 833, investigating the correlation between position and interpretation of adverbials using experimental methods.
