I am an associate professor of Dutch at Stockholm University (Sweden). I am also affiliated as a researcher at the University of Gothenburg with funding from the Swedish Research Council. I am originally from Belgium (the Dutch-speaking northern part) and currently live in Gothenburg.
My research interests are language variation and change studied from a functional perspective. I have mainly worked on emerging verb constructions, word order variation and phonological variation in Dutch.
My current project research is titled "The emergence of periphrastic verb constructions in Dutch. A construction grammar approach to language change". It aims to integrate insights from grammaticalization research, construction grammar and quantitative corpus linguistics.
