I am a linguist specializing in historical and theoretical linguistics, in particular historical-comparative Indo-European linguistics, morphosyntax, and argument structure. I mostly work on older Indo-European languages like Vedic Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, Hittite, and Latin, and I enjoy working on topics that combine language change and historical linguistics with 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.

If you ask me whether I consider myself a historical or a theoretical linguist I will probably say “both” (or: “go away”, depending on how you ask).
