I am a sociolinguist with roots in Spanish literature and media, and English and American Studies, and interests in spoken language corpora, (morpho)syntax, language and dialect contact, processes of language mixing and fusion, contact varieties, language variation and change, and language related to processes of identity, migration and mobility. Within my PhD dissertation, I have explored the use of personal pronouns and progressive aspect in a Belgian Dutch-German-Limburgish contact variety. I am currently at the Department of European Languages and Cultures at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
