I am an assistant professor of linguistics at Cal State, Northridge. I have broad research interests in linguistics, and have worked on research questions in syntax, semantics, and the interaction between syntax and morpho-phonology.
I did my PhD at the University of Michigan and then taught at Carleton College and the University of New Hampshire. I have a long-standing interest in Hawaiian and comparative Polynesian linguistics, with a focus on the syntax, phonology, and morphology of these languages. My dissertation examines the morpho-syntax and semantics of morphological imperatives.
