I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.

I am working in the project "Documentation of Enets: digitization and analysis of legacy field materials and fieldwork with last speakers".

I am also a visiting researcher at the Department of Linguistics and English Language at University of Edinburgh.

My research interests

  • language documentation
  • Enets and other languages of Siberia
  • language contact
  • morphosyntactic and semantic typology


NB: The sound file for the Tundra Enets text I have recently published in "Vestnik Jamalo-Neneckogo Avtonomnogo Okruga"
can be downloaded here.
