Education and research

My main research interests are language variation and change in situations of multilingualism and language contact. I hold a BA in Linguistics (Comparative Indo-European Linguistics) and an MA in Latin American Studies (Language Variation and Change), both from Leiden University. For my MA thesis about Dutch as a heritage language in Brazil, I collected data in three Dutch heritage communities in Paraná in order to analyse language variation in Dutch and code-switching between Dutch and Portuguese. During and after my MA, I worked as a research assistant at the Heritage Linguistics Lab (HERLING), where I helped conducting a study in which the code-switched speech of heritage speakers of Papiamento, Turkish and Spanish in the Netherlands was compared. Since 2021, I teach language acquisition and linguistics courses at the Dutch department of the Károli Gáspár University in Budapest. During my PhD, I will study code-switched plural nouns in the speech of different bilingual groups in contact with Hungarian.
