My area of expertise is the interface of grammar and meaning from a crosslinguistic perspective. I currently investigate how people talk about sensory perception and the landscape across languages. My other research interests include information structure, clause linkage and reported speech and thought. I focus mostly on African languages, especially Avatime (Kwa, Niger-Congo), spoken in Ghana, where I have done extended fieldwork.

I am part of the project 'Language as key to perceptual diversity', funded by the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, headed by Niclas Burenhult (Lund, Sweden). Within this project, researchers from several disciplines come together to study human perception in different cultures.
