I am a visiting professor ("Vertretungsprofessorin") at the English Department at the University of Göttingen. My areas of expertise are semantics and pragmatics. From September 2014 to September 2016 I was a Marie Curie Fellow in the Department of Translation and Language Sciences at Pompeu Fabra University. My  Marie Curie project (PIEF-GA-2013-622311) investigated the expression of modality in the determiner domain.  Building on this project, my current research agenda aims to situate modal determiners in a typology of modal expressions, by undertaking a systematic comparison between determiner and verbal modality. My increased interest in the expression of modality across categories has led me to organize an international peer-reviewed workshop on this topic, which took place at Pompeu Fabra University in November 2015.
