I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science at the University of Delaware. My primary research interests are in syntax and psycholinguistics; I focus mostly on subjecthood, case and agreement, and long-distance dependencies, working with data from a variety of languages, including the Polynesian language Niuean. I am especially interested in the relationship between syntax, sentence processing, and information structure, and my research makes use of a variety of formal and experimental techniques. You can find out more about the Experimental Syntax Lab at UD here.

Before coming to Delaware, I completed my Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Toronto. You can download my dissertation here.
