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 on the Latin narrative tenses in January 2017. At the LVLT XIII conference in Budapest in 2018, I was awarded the József Herman Award. 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."
As of October 1st, 2021, I will be conducting an FWO-funded postdoc research with the title "Tracing change and reaction in the Latin tense system: an empirical analysis of language-internal and language-external influences on the development of morphological innovations and form-function pairings from Early Latin to Early Romance" (2021-2024).
