I am a linguist specializing in historical-comparative Indo-European linguistics and theoretical linguistics, in particular morphosyntactic change, the reconstruction of nominal and verbal morphology, and the diachrony of argument structure, valency, and voice. I mostly work on older Indo-European languages like Ancient Greek, Vedic Sanskrit, Avestan, Hittite, and Latin, and I enjoy working on topics that require a combination of methods from comparative philology, historical linguistics, and syntactic and morphological theory. I am especially interested in mismatches between syntax and morphological exponence (“wrong” or exceptional forms), their diachrony, and their implications for syntactic and morphological theory. Most recently I have been working on the Ancient Greek verbal system from a diachronic and theoretical perspective.

You can find most of my output (handouts, papers, etc.) on this website or on my academia.edu page, but please e-mail me if you’re having trouble finding a paper.
