Associate professor in Scandinavian languages at Uppsala University
Membership period 2013–2018
I am Associate Professor of Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University. My main interest of research lies in language variation and change. My doctoral dissertation focused on syntactic variation and change in Old Swedish (the loss of null-referential subjects) and many of my later publications also address topics in historical linguistics. I am also interested in questions concerning the modern varieties of the Scandinavian Languages. After receiving his Ph.D. in Scandinavian Languages at Lund University in 2008, I was lecturer in Swedish at Växjö University (2008-2009) and postdoctoral research fellow at University of Copenhagen (2009-2010).
