I am currently a Banting Fellow, hosted by the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto.

My research focuses on the morphology, syntax, and semantics of tense and aspect, particularly expressions of anteriority (past, perfect, and perfective) and their representations in terms of syntactic features. I am also more broadly interested in how information is represented and manipulated in terms of features, for example in case and agreement.

I have also worked on topics in morphophonology, especially the morphological conditioning of processes such as stress assignment and reduplication, and on the syntax and semantics of coordination, especially asymmetric coordination.

I received a B.A. in linguistics and philosophy from McGill University in 2006, and I completed my Ph.D in linguistics at MIT in September 2011. My thesis, BE-ing Default: the Morphosyntax of Auxiliaries, is available online from LingBuzz.
