My specialization is theoretical syntax, where I have a wide variety of interests. I am currently investigating serial verb constructions and argument sharing.
I am also very interested in the syntax/semantics interface, where work on the interpretation of nominals - particularly in terms of parameters like degree of definiteness, kind/individual, mass/count, plurality, and so forth.
My secondary specialization is morphology. My prior work in this area has been on second-position effects, but I am generally interested in the mapping between syntax and phonology. I investigate Spanning and Contiguity Theoretic approaches to these issues.
I achieved my B.A. at the University of Florida where I studied linguistics with a minor focus in anthropology. Much of my anthropological interests ventured into ethnography, where I largely worked on the study of cultural trauma and social memory/identity.
I am proud to serve this year as the elected Vice President of the Linguistics Society at UGA (LSUGA).
