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

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.

I received a B.A. in linguistics and philosophy from McGill University in 2006, and I'm originally from Vancouver, BC.

My current research focuses on the morphology, syntax, and semantics of tense and aspect, particularly expressions of anteriority (past, perfect, and perfective) and their featureal representations. I am also interested in morphophonology, especially the morphological conditioning of phonological processes such as stress assignment and reduplication, and in the syntax and semantics of coordination, especially asymmetric coordination.
