I’m a research fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. There I’m basically working on phonetics and phonology of a number of languages, especially from the Caucasus, Siberia, India, Southern Africa and Argentina. But recently I started doing research on the phonetics of human primates (chimps & bonobos).

What am I doing?

In general …

  • I’m eager to learn about modelling language change driven by language contact, social structures and geography
  • I’m deeply interested in voice, voice perception and voice production from an evolutionary, behavioral and cultural perspective
  • I’m deeply interested in the mechanisms of sound change and language involving acquisition, learning and accommodatin
  • I enjoy doing field work e.g. in language documentation projects, and such engaged in documenting endangered languages
  • I’m eager to learn more about specific phonetic details in individual languages, such as
    • Ket (Yeniseic, Central Siberia)
    • Tsez, Bezhta, Hinuqh, Dargi, Lezgi, Chamalal, Avar, Chechen, Ingush (Nakh-Dagestanian, North-East Caucasus), Georgian (Kartvelian),
    • Gta’, Bonda (Munda, India)
    • Hoocaak (Sioux, USA)
    • German (especially Thuringian-Saxonian varieties)
    • Taa (Tuu (KhoiSan))
    • Kurmanji Kurdish (Iranian, Turkey/Armenia/Iraq/Azerbaidjan/Iran/…)
    • Yoruba (Niger-Kongo), Oko, Ebira (Atlantic-Congo)
    • Vilela (Lule-Vilela)
    • Welsh (Celtic)
