My research is primarily in theoretical syntax and morphology, and I have particular interests in grammatical gender, number, syncretisms, clitic doubling, and the morphosyntax of agreement, and the fine line between haplology and multiple exponence. The languages I specialize in are mostly members of the Afroasiatic language family, with a special emphasis on  Amharic (Ethio-Semitic).

For detailed information about my past and present research activities, see my C.V. and this list of downloadable papers and handouts.

Teaching and Advising

I greatly enjoy teaching, and please see a list of past and present courses (being) taught.
