I'm a M.Sc. Student of Linguistics at the University of Potsdam. Currently, I investigate sharing constructions in Samoan with a focus on subject sharing and conjunction reduction.
Simultaneously, I'm a PhD student at the chair of and supervised by Doreen Georgi. Further, I'm an associated member of the MGK of the CRC 1287.
My research interests are in syntactic structures of coordinative constructions in Polynesian and, more generally, Austronesian languages. I've worked mainly on Samoan, and will further extend my research. Further I'm interested in the typological distribution of certain constructions and phenomena across languages and sub-families in the group of Austronesian languages. In the past, I have worked on comparative constructions, comparative particles and equative constructions.
