We are happy to welcome Prof. Dr. Artemis Alexiadou and her team, consisting of Dr. Giorgos Spathas, Dr. Jeannique Darby, Dr. Nino Grillo, and Nils Hirsch to the institute of English Linguistics.

 


 

AlexiadouArtemis Alexiadou studied Linguistics and Philology at the University of Athens, Greece. She received her MA in Linguistics at the University of Reading, UK. She received her Ph.D. in 1994 at the Universität Potsdam, and her habilitation in 1999 at the same University. She has taught English Linguistics at the University of Stuttgart, where she was a Professor for Theoretical and English Linguistics from 2002 to September 2015. She was the principal investigator on several DFG funded projects and the Director of the SFB 732 at the University of Stuttgart from 2006 to September 2015. In 2014 she was awarded the DFG Gottfried-Wilhelm-Leibniz Prize. Her research interests include theoretical and comparative syntax, syntax and its interfaces to morphology and interpretation, multilingualism and heritage languages.
 


 

SpathasGiorgos Spathas is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik in the project DFG AL 554/8-1 (Leibnizpreis 2014) of Prof. Dr. Artemis Alexiadou. He completed his PhD studies on theoretical linguistics in the University of Utrecht in 2010 and has been working as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Stuttgart since 2012. His research investigates the interfaces between different modules of grammar, particularly the syntax-semantics and the syntax-prosody interface. His work focuses on Binding Theory, Focus Theory, Argument and Event Structure, and the syntax and semantics of Phi-Features.
