About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution, and a member of the ERC Synergy funded project "QUANTA: origin of cognitive tools for quantification".

My research interests lie in the framework of diversity linguistics, which includes historical linguistics and linguistic typology. I use a data-driven approach for the reconstruction and comparison of human languages, which includes computational and statistical methods.

In the scope of the QUANTA project, I am interested in the history and evolution of numeral systems and related quantity constructions along history at a global scale, with special focus on the contact scenarios that trigger language change in this semantic field.
