Other Profiles

Welcome!

My current research focuses on syntax, its interface with morphology, and (morpho)syntactic variation and change. I also specialize in Alaska Native and Native American languages where I have been designing digital technologies and exploring their best use in language revitalization efforts. If I haven't met you yet, I hope to meet you soon and please feel free to contact me!
