I wrote my dissertation in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at UC Berkeley. Now, I am a research associate at the Center for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies at the at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), where I work with students, teach classes, supervise degree thesis writing and cooridinate development of a new European Master of Modern Polish Studies.

I am interested in the West Slavic morphosyntax, with particular attention to Polish, which is my native language. The areas of my main interest include small clauses, predication, case distribution, and nominalization. My dissertation research concentrated on secondary predication in Polish, with special attention phrasal secondary predicates, such as do sucha (Pol.'until dry').

Recently I started to expand into language contact, contact induced changes in language as well as language policies in the Slavic area.
