I am an Assistant Professor & the Anandavalli & Dr. G. Swaminathan Endowed Research Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Stony Brook University.

.

My research program explores two broad questions: 

  1. For a given grammatical phenomenon, what is the nature of interaction and division of labor between syntax and its interfaces with morphology and semantics, within a modular grammar?

  2. What can dialectal and crosslinguistic variation tell us about how a given phenomenon should be syntactically modelled?
