My research interests are language variation and change studied from a functional-cognitive perspective. I have mainly been working on word order change in Dutch, emerging verb constructions in Germanic, and ongoing language change in Contemporary Swedish.

I am currently involved in the research projects Verb constructions in the recent history of Dutch. A constructional network perspective (VR 2024-2026) and Cassandra: Explaining and predicting short-term language change in Contemporary Swedish" (MAW 2021-2024).
