I am interested in how and if the environment we live in can influence the way we perceive the world, talk, or even tell stories.

My research is concerned with approaches to grammar and discourse that combine descriptive and documentary elements of linguistic research with functional and typological theoretical implications for language use. My work is solidly grounded within Anthropological Linguistics, in particular the space and cognition interface and narrative structure of Aboriginal dreamtime stories as an interactive practice of oral history.
