I am a post-doc researcher at the Department of General Linguistics, Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf. I am also the Erasmus coordinator for the Department of General Linguistics.

 

Research interests

I basically focus on the investigation of the syntax-semantics interface, focusing on syntactic and semantic properties of complex expressions as well as on deep lexical decomposition. In particular, my work is concerned with the following issues:

Syntax and semantics of complex predicates, especially light verb constructions in German and Persian & the modification of light verb constructions                                                                                                                                                                                    Degree expressions and their interaction with lexical aspect                                                                                                                  Aspectual composition (contrastive analysis Germanic vs Slavic languages)                                                                                        Case marking asymmetries (Germanic and Iranian languages)

Languages I worked on: German, Polish, Bulgarian, Russian, French, Persian
