I am a PhD student in linguistics at the German department of Graz University. I studied General Linguistics and Logic in Göttingen and Amsterdam. From 2015 to 2017, I was part of the XPrag.de project about "Exhaustivity in Cleft Sentences" in Göttingen. My research interest include experimental and formal semantics/pragmatics and corpus linguistics. I have worked on tense and aspect, cleft sentences in different languages and the information structure-prosody interface. In my dissertation, I am concerned with the discourse function of German cleft sentences.
