Research Interests

Multilingualism and language contact; language variation and change; lesser used languages (Yiddish and Low German).


I graduated from Hamburg University, completed a two year long teachers training course and was awarded the degree of Dr phil (PhD equivalent) in Linguistics from Hamburg University. For my PhD I analysed spoken modern Yiddish. My research since then focuses on multilingualism and language contact, language and globalization, lesser used languages (Yiddish and Low German).
