My research focuses on various aspects of sign language linguistics, particularly morphology, the relation between morphology and phonology, (morpho)syntax, and use of space.
Until recently, I was involved in building a corpus for Sign Language of the Netherlands (NGT): the Corpus NGT. Currently, I work on the syntactic structure of simultaneous constructions in Sign Language of the Netherlands (NGT) and (acquisition of) spatial expression in Turkish Sign Language (TID). These studies are subprojects of the projects "On the other hand" (PI: Onno Crasborn) and "Language in our hands" (PI: Asli Özyürek).
I am also interested in (applications for) learning and teaching signed languages as a second language.
