I am a postdoctoral researcher at the URPP Language and Space at the University of Zurich and a lecturer at the Department of Applied Linguistics at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.
Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the field of multimodal pragmatics and pragmatic development. I am particularily interested in how children acquire and co-develop different verbal and multimodal aspects (with a main focus on gesture and prosody) and how they become pragmatically competent members.
Feel free to contact me when you have any questions or comments about my research, or if you are
interested in collaboration!
Main research interests in keywords (see research section):
Comparative language acquisition
The multimodal integration of gesture, speech and prosody
Relationship between language and cognition
