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.
