I am a syntactician and a morphologist. You might also find me talking about phonology. My research focuses primarily on Estonian and Icelandic. I am interested both in aspects of nominal morphosyntax and in their relation to clausal morphosyntax, with an eye towards the interaction of syntax and morphology more broadly.
My dissertation, A Theory of Nominal Concord, focuses primarily on apparent agreement processes inside of nominals in (primarily) Estonian and Icelandic. I propose a novel theory of nominal concord that distinguishes it formally from other well-studied forms of agreement, like subject-verb agreement. I expect to graduate in Spring of 2014.
