I am an assistant teaching professor at the Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University.

My research is mainly in theoretical and comparative syntax, primarily on the interfaces between syntax, semantics, and morphology.

I also work on linguistic variation and change, focusing on what variation can tell us about the formal systems that generates it.

Much of my work is on Mandarin Chinese (and other East Asian languages) and English dialect morphosyntax.
