Hi, my name is Alex and I am an assistant professor at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen where I am part of the Semantics and Cognition Group headed by Petra Hendriks. My research is situated in the field of experimental Pragmatics and I am interested in strategic communication. For example, I focus on how speakers’ formulation choices change depending on the communicative goals they pursue.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral research fellow on the `Making Numbers Meaningful’ project led by Bodo Winter at the University of Birmingham. I did my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh supervised by Hannah Rohde and Chris Cummins.

This year I teach the following courses at the RUG:

  • statistics
  • BA thesis seminar
  • quantitative methods
  • multimodal communication

In my freetime, I love to sketch :)
