My research covers the description, classification and history of African languages spoken in Sub-Saharan Africa and more specifically Niger-Congo languages (including Bantoid and Bantu languages) with particular interest to classifications using phylogenetic methods. I try to understand human migrations by combining linguistic, geographical, palaeoclimate and simulated data.
Moreover, as a historical linguist, I am also collecting and analysing linguistic data for several language families (Indo-European, Polynesian, Semitic, Japonic and Turkic) in order to study linguistic changes.
