I graduated in 2013 from Ghent University as Master of Arts in Linguistics and Literature: English-Latin. In my MA dissertation, I discussed tense and aspect in Caesar's narrative under the supervision of prof. Wolfgang de Melo and prof. Mark Janse. In 2014, I obtained a second Master's degree, in Latin and Greek, with a dissertation on Ancient Greek aspect from a Systemic Functional perspective in the writings of Thucydides, under the supervision of dr. Klaas Bentein and prof. Mark Janse, and graduated summa cum laude.
In 2015, I obtained my teacher's degree and started teaching Latin and Greek in secondary schools, until I was able to start my PhD in Latin linguistics in January 2017. On 24th of March 2021, I successfully defended my PhD dissertation with the title: "Latin tense and aspect in 3D: a corpus-based, Systemic Functional description of the narrative tenses in the language of Livy and Gregory of Tours."
Within the course of my PhD, I presented a paper at the following colloquia:
Apart from these papers, I have given guest lectures at Ghent University, the University of Leuven, University of Amsterdam and the University of Oxford.
At the LVLT XIII conference, I was awarded the József Herman Award.
