My research is mostly in theoretical syntax and morphology, and I have particular interests in clitic doubling, gender, number, and the fine line between prepositions and case markers. The languages I specialize in are Amharic (Ethio-Semitic) and Ancient Egyptian (the language written with hieroglyphs), both of which are members of the Afroasiatic language family.

For detailed information about my past and present research activities, see my C.V. and this list of downloadable papers and handouts.

Teaching and Advising

I greatly enjoy teaching, and please see here for a list of past and present courses (being) taught.

I am currently serving as the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Linguistics. Please contact me with questions about the major and minor.

Contact Information, etc.

If you need to reach me, here's how. For the curious: more information on how I began studying Egyptian, and things that I do when I am not doing linguistics.
