Visiting Scholar: Sofiana Chiriacescu


We have a visiting scholar, Sofiana Chiriacescu, from the University of Stuttgart, Germany spending the Spring Semester 2011 at our department, working on an experiment in the language processing lab coordinated by Elsi Kaiser.



Sofiana is a Ph.D. Fellow and a researcher at the University of Stuttgart. Her main research interests are in semantics, pragmatics and psycholinguistics. She currently investigates the discourse structuring potential of indefinite noun phrases in Romanian, German and English. Sofiana graduated with an M.A. in German and English Linguistics and Literature from the University of Stuttgart in 2007 and a Diploma in German, English and Sociology form the University “Lucian Blaga”, Sibiu, Romania in 2003.



When not working, the things Sofiana enjoys most are outdoor activities (skiing, hiking, biking, playing tennis, gardening), spending time with her friends and family and cooking.
