My current research looks at the historical development and typology of relative clauses in the Italic group of Indo-European, esp. in pre-Classical Latin. In my doctoral dissertation, which I am currently preparing for publication with OUP, I have looked at the influence of West Middle Iranian languages on the syntax of Classical Armenian.

In general, my research and teaching focuses on historical linguistics, specifically of Latin, Greek, Classical Armenian, and West Middle Iranian (Parthian, Middle Persian). In particular, I am interested in the language contact between ancient languages, and the historical development of relative clauses and their typology.

Next to my RA position, I also work at the Classics Faculty as Instructor for Latin and Ancient Greek, and support the Philological Society as a Member of Council.
