​Welcome to my homepage!


I am a linguist. 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?

  •  From 2021, I will be a researcher at the University of Göttingen on the project LASER: "Locality and the argument/adjunct distinction: Structure building vs. structure-enrichment" (see below for details).

  • From 2022, I will be Assistant Professor of Linguistics & the Anandavalli & Dr. G. Swaminathan Endowed Research Professor at Stony Brook University, NY.
