ABOUT ME

Born in Luxembourg, I was raised in a multilingual environment. Alongside my first language, Luxembourgish, I was exposed to German, French, and English as secondary languages. Consequently, from an early age, I encountered diverse social and linguistic interactions among these languages.

While pursuing my linguistic studies in Bamberg, Germany, my primary focus shifted towards the phonetics of languages—their production, perception, and their role in communication. Continuously driven by curiosity, I also explore various linguistic branches and domains.

My journey included the study of languages such as Latin, Old Greek, and Old Church Slavonic, alongside modern languages like Spanish, Czech, and Portuguese. Engaging in both learning and teaching these languages provided me with a comprehensive understanding of grammatical structures, functions, and linguistic systems. This knowledge serves me well in both my research endeavors and teaching pursuits, as well as in conveying scientific concepts to the broader public and society.
