My primary research interest is sign language linguistics. Specific areas of interest are morphology, subordination and negation. I am generally interested in sign language morphology and grammaticalization, as well as the cross-modalcomparison of signed vs. spoken languagesI have previously investigated the existentials/possession, negation, and reduplication in Swedish SIgn Language. For my PhD project, I will investigate and compare the expression of transitive concepts in three different sign languages: Al-Sayyid Bedouin Sign Language (ABSL); Israeli Sign Language (ISL); and Swedish Sign Language (SSL).
