In previous research I have dealt with Iberian-based creoles in general and Papiamentu in particular, as well as with (the history of) the Catalo-Occitan GO-past. My current project, funded by an NWO Veni Grant, studies language use, contact, and change in Haitian Creole migrant communities in Cuba and Samaná (the latter a peninsula of the Dominican Republic).
