Research summary

My PhD research investigates the origins of cross-linguistic patterns in NPs using experimental methods. I am especially interested in artificial language learning and gestural experiments and their reflection on the cognitive features involved in language creation and use. I also conduct research on language development/acquisition, focusing mainly on phonological segmentation and the typological frequency of syllable patterns in infant directed speech.
