I’m a linguist. My area of expertise is semantics, specifically semantic typology. I’m fascinated by the mental lexicon and the cognitive basis of semantic networks. My research is looking at language from a cross-linguistic perspective and in my Master's thesis, I conducted the first systematic study of body part terms for objects and landscape features.
