Office hours (in corona times): Due to the current development of the pandemic, we're unfortunately back to the "only virtual office hours" situation. Check here to check if I'm available. If those time slots don't work for you, send me an e-mail to arrange another time, since I won't be moving much.

Short Bio

Although the term sometimes sounds a bit outdated, I call myself a dialectologist, because my main interest as a linguist is on language variation and change. My research focusses on morphosyntactic variation and change in Spanish and other Ibero-Romance languages, including phenomena attested in social networks such as Twitter. Because I do empirical and quantitative research, I really care about corpora, fieldwork, data collection methods and statistics. I hold a PhD in Spanish Linguistics from the Autonomous University of Madrid, under the supervision of Inés Fernández-Ordóñez and Johannes Kabatek.
