In recent years he has lead research projects on information structure and context modelling, noncanonical constructions and discourse particles and participated as collaborating researcher in projects on information structure and word order, discourse, evidentiality, and long-distance dependencies. His work has appeared in journals like LinguisticsProbus, and Journal of Pragmatics and books published by Academic Press, Cambridge University Press, CSLI/Stanford, Garland Publishing, Oxford University Press, and Routledge.
