I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Program in Linguistics and Cognitive Science at University at Albany, State University of New York. My primary interests are theoretical syntax and the syntax-prosody interface. I work primarily with data from the Austronesian and Mayan families, using both traditional and quantitative methods. Since moving to Albany, I've started working on Copala Triqui. Click below to link to my dissertation, "Prosodic Noun Incorporation and Verb-Initial Syntax" (2014).
