Since 2012, I have been a researcher at the University of Gothenburg, in the department of Philosophy, Linguistics, and Theory of Science. As of July 2014, I am also a fellow in the Pro Futura Scientia program funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and arranged by the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) at Uppsala University. Throughout my tenure in this program I will retain my affiliation with University of Gothenburg, so I am now affiliated with both SCAS (Uppsala University) and the University of Gothenburg.

Prior to this I held research and teaching positions at the Department of General Linguistics at Heinrich Heine University (Duesseldorf, Germany) and the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University (Lund, Sweden). I have also spent time in Austin, Texas, both at Cycorp, Inc., and at the Linguistics Department at the University of Texas at Austin.

I received a B.A. in Linguistics from Northwestern University in 2002 and a Ph.D. in Linguistics from Stanford University in 2009. I became "Docent" in Linguistics through the University of Gothenburg in December 2013. ("Docent" Google Translates as "Associate Professor" but this is misleading. "Docent" is a qualification like a Ph.D., similar to a German "Habilitation"; it involves among some other things doing a quantity of research roughly equivalent to a second Ph.D. and means in practice only that one is allowed to advise graduate students.)
