I am an Associate Professor of Linguistics at the University of Connecticut. I am from Austria and I have been in Connecticut since 2003. 

I previously worked at the Department of Linguistics at McGill University. Before that, I completed the PhD program in Linguistics at MIT (my dissertation was about infinitives). And before that, I studied German philology and Linguistics (Germanistik und Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft) at the Universität Wien.

My research speciality is theoretical syntax, and I usually work on Germanic, but I have also done work on Japanese, Itelmen, and I am currently working on Greek, Arabic, and Austronesian.

I am also the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Comparative Germanic Linguistics.http://www.linguistics.uconn.edu/http://www.mcgill.ca/linguisticshttp://www.mcgill.ca/linguisticshttp://web.mit.edu/linguistics/www/home.htmlhttp://linguistik.univie.ac.athttp://linguistik.univie.ac.athttp://www.springer.com/linguistics/journal/10828http://www.springer.com/linguistics/journal/10828shapeimage_1_link_0shapeimage_1_link_1shapeimage_1_link_2shapeimage_1_link_3shapeimage_1_link_4shapeimage_1_link_5shapeimage_1_link_6shapeimage_1_link_7
