I am working on the internal relationships between the Indo-European language branches, but I am also engaged in many other phonological and morphological aspects of of Indo-European linguistics. I am further interested in language history of other language families, language variation in general, epigraphy and runology.
My PhD project has the working title The relationship between Greek and Indo-Iranian. I am examining how closely related these two branches are within the Indo-European language family. I am working with different comparative methods and am trying to establish significant innovations shared by the two groups in their phonology and inflectional morphology. I am further interested in linking this hypothetic language state to archaeological material cultures and prehistoric migrations.
Primary fields of research
- comparative Indo-European linguistics
- reconstruction of the Indo-European proto-language
- the relationship between Indo-Iranian and Greek
- Greek linguistic history
- Indo-Iranian linguistic history
I am able to supervise exam papers or BA theses on Indo-European linguistics, Greek or Indo-Iranian language history. I am happy to receive inquiries or questions.
