I am a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in Surrey Morphology Group (SMG), a research centre at the School of Literature & Languages. I am working on morpho-syntactic micro-variation and its relation with mutual intelligibility between three Turkic languages of Central Asia – Kazakh, Uzbek, Karakalpak within the British Academy funded project Morpho-syntax of mutual intelligibility in the Turkic languages of Central Asia.
My previous work includes fieldwork in Kazakhstan, research on the Kazakh information structure and syntax, Russian negation and negative polarity items.
