Ph.D., Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

I am a leading specialist at Research Computing Center, Lomonosov Moscow State University, investigating agreement variation in Russian. I am also interested in nonfinite clauses, i.e. infinitives and nominalizations, and negative polarity items licensing. In my research I primarily use methods of experimental syntax with particular interest in linguistic variation.

With my supervisor Prof. Dr. Habil. Ekaterina Lyutikova I teach a course on experimental syntax at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics (Lomonosov MSU).

PhD Project

Quantitative Methods of Investigating Grammar
(A Case Study of Agreement Variation in Russian)

Defended on June 15th 2023. Learn more [In Russian].

For my dissertation, I conducted a multifactorial study of binominal copular clauses in Russian. My goal was to define a set of parameters that determine agreement variation and investigate whether this set depends on grammatical profiles of individual speakers.

My supervisor is Prof. Dr. Habil. Ekaterina Lyutikova.
