Quick CV
I am a linguist, currently working at Leiden University Centre for Linguistics on my NWO VENI project called Number Words. The goal of the project is to better understand the relation between the grammar of numerals in natural language, their meaning, and number cognition. I approach this task from a cross-linguistic, morphosyntactic, semantic, philosophical and cognitive perspectives.
From November 2013 till November 2016, I was a postdoc at the Meertens Institute, Amsterdam, working on cross-linguistic variation in morphosyntax of numerals.

My dissertation entitled The Grammar of Standards [pdf] was written in Utrecht Institute for Linguistics OTS and defended in February 2014.

My interests are: meaning and structure of degree and quantity constructions, grammar of subjectivity and perspective-sensitivity in natural language. I am also interested in semantic aspects of cross-linguistic and typological research, philosophy and cognition.
