Short curriculum vitae
I worked as a banker until 2006 when I decided to change careers and pursue my passion for languages. That same year I enrolled at Chemnitz University of Technology in the English and American Studies program. In the course of my studies I worked part-time as a translator, private tutor, and student assistant. As an undergraduate student I spent one semester at Acadia University, Canada. I graduated from Chemnitz University with a Master’s degree in English and American Studies (specialization in linguistics and TESOL) in early 2012, and took up a post teaching in the TESOL program at Chemnitz University.
My main research interests are morphology, phonology, and Second Language Acquisition. For my Bachelor’s thesis, I investigated the impact of Standard Canadian English pronunciation features on Newfoundland English. My Master’s thesis focused on case variation among coordinated pronouns in present-day English.
