Hi! Welcome to this webpage. From October 2016 I work as a lecturer in Research and Communication at The Hague University of Applied Sciences.

From August 2011 until July 2016 I was a PhD candidate at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (Utrecht University) in the Netherlands, under supervision of Yoad Winter. My PhD project roughly falls within the areas of (conceptuIMG_7674-1al) semantics and psycholinguistics, and focused on the effects of typicality on the interpretation of logical expressions such as and and each other, specifically in plural sentences. This research was part of the NWO-funded VICI project Between Logic and Common Sense: The Formal Semantics of Words.
