I am an Associate Professor of Linguistics and Cognitive Science at Pomona College.

My main research interests include syntactic and morphological theory, and the syntax and morphosyntax of languages of East Africa. My main areas of interest are in the domains of agreement and noun phrase licensing, though I am involved with multiple long-term documentation projects as well. Much of my recent work has morphed into investigations of the interface between information structure and syntax, both in Bantu languages and in Nilo-Saharan (Kipsigis).

I teach courses on syntax, morphology, and field methods, in addition to introductory-level courses on language and linguistics.

A selection of papers and handouts are available for download.

I have developed and aggregated some resources that are useful for learning LaTeX that are specifically aimed at the undergraduate linguistics student, and LaTeX beginners more generally.

My CV is available here.
