Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of diachronic syntax within the generative framework. I specifically examine how we can formalise diachronic contact-induced change in linear configurations. I focus on Asia Minor Greek, specifically on Romeyka, an endangered Asia Minor Greek variety spoken in the north-east Turkey, as well as on Anatolian Turkish, and on Kartvelian languages, that is the languages Asia Minor Greek has been in contact with.
