I am a doctoral student in linguistics at the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University.
My current research focuses on psycholinguistic aspects of metaphor use in a bimodal and bilingual perspective (see Research section below for further details).
My background lies mainly within the fields of linguistics and cognitive neuroscience and I've conducted experimental research in various domains of human cognition and social-communicative behaviour.
I recently conducted a series of experiments using methods developed in the field of experimental semiotics. The goal was to examine whether the basic syntactic structures of gestural communication systems emerging in a lab setting could be predicted on the basis of structural properties of everyday transitive events.
