Background and activities

I am a PhD student in linguistics at The Department of Language and Literature, NTNU. The topic of my PhD project is the syntax and semantics of German and English participle constructions, with a focus on participial adjuncts. Since the spring of 2013 I have also taught a range of different courses in German and English linguistics at NTNU.

I am also a member of the research groups AcqVA and eScApeS.
