An Van linden is associate professor of English language and linguistics at the University of Liège and affiliated researcher in the research unit Functional and Cognitive Linguistics at the University of Leuven, where she obtained her MA in Germanic languages (English and Dutch) in 2004 and her PhD in English linguistics in 2009. Her doctoral research focused on complementation patterns with modal-evaluative adjectives in English such as essential and appropriate, from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. Before joining the University of Liège in October 2016, she secured several postdoctoral positions, funded by the Research Council of KU Leuven (2009-2010), the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO) (2010-2014), and the Fund for Scientific Research - FNRS, hosted by the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) (2015-2016). In the course of these postdoctoral fellowships, she developed a further interest in the domains of mood and modality as well as clause-combining, complementation and insubordination. In addition, she started documenting and describing Harakmbut, an unclassified language from the Peruvian Amazon, with fieldwork stays in three different Harakmbut communities. In between the latter two positions (2014-2015), she worked as a doctoral assistant in Business Communication at the University of Leuven (50%) and as a Visiting Professor in English Linguistics at Ghent University (30%).
