I am a Phd candidate at the
Department of Linguistics,
University of Konstanz, Germany.
I believe that exploring the interaction between different modules of language is the key to unraveling
the complex process of linguistic communication. My work is concerned with the prosody-syntax-pragmatics interface.

with word order. Recently I have been interested in psycholinguistics and am working on the production and
