I am a visiting assistant professor in the Linguistics Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I received my PhD from the University of Connecticut.
My major research areas involve syntax and phonology.
On the syntax side, I've been mainly focusing on crosslinguistic variation related to adjectival and nominal phrases in a number of Slavic, Germanic, and Romance languages.
On the phonology side, I am especially drawn to stress and pitch-accent, and the interaction of syntax and phonology in the context of various accentual phenomena involving clitics. I am also interested in morphology, experimental syntax, and psycholinguistics.
