Thomas Jügel is interested in the development of languages, in particular, of Iranic languages. The Middle Iranic period is in his focus since it allows  to trace the linguistic development from Old to New Iranic. He has investigated questions of alignment, ergativity, case, pronominal systems and agreement as well as tense and aspect. Beside work on Old and Middle Iranic, he also explored various topics of New Iranic dialectology with special consideration of Kurdish.

Following his education in Berlin and Frankfurt am Main, he spent years abroad in Sweden, France and Japan, and is now working on the linguistic annotation of the Middle Persian corpus in the MPCD project.
