I'm a linguist working for the Department of Frisian Language and Culture and the Centre of Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG), at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

I currently work as an assistant professor of Sociolinguistics and have previously held a post doc on a project about mutual intelligibility between closely related languages at the Department of Scandinavian Languages and Cultures also at the University of Groningen.

You can read more about my post-doc project, led by Dr. Charlotte Gooskens, here.

I wrote my PhD thesis about regional dialect levelling in Norway, at the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York. You can access the thesis here
