I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Institute of Iranian Studies at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and PI of the FWF-funded Elise-Richter project “Verbal categories and categorizers in diachrony” (V-850).
I received my MA in linguistics from the University of Vienna in 2009 (supervised by Melanie Malzahn) and my PhD in linguistics from Harvard University in 2014. At Harvard I worked with Jay Jasanoff (my dissertation adviser), Jeremy Rau, Isabelle Charnavel, and Sabine Iatridou (at MIT). I then spent three years as an assistant professor at Concordia University in Montreal (2014 – 2017), followed by fours years at the University of Vienna as university assistant (Universitätsassistentin) in the Department of Linguistics (2017 – 2021). I taught both historical/Indo-European and theoretical linguistics classes at both institutions and have supervised and co-supervised several BA and MA theses.
I think I had hobbies once but I forgot what they were. Traveling? Who doesn’t like traveling! The pictures on this page are from travels to Sicily, Venice, and Iceland.
