I am currently lecturing at the English department of the University of Wuppertal and am a PhD student at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge (King's College).
My main research interests are in formal linguistics, more specifically syntactic and morphological theory. In addition to my formal inclinations, I am fascinated by the construction of identities (particularly the special role assigned to national ones) and the role language can play in it.
From 2013 until 2016, I was a member of the student committee of the LAGB.
I am also training and teaching Capoeira Angola when I get the chance. In April 2014, I was awarded the title of treinel (trainer). Until summer 2015, I ran regular classes in Cambridge.
