I am a Lecturer in Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania.

I study syntactic structure, and how it relates to meaning. My main areas of research are morphosyntax, argument structure, and event structure.

I also work on generative approaches to syntactic variation.

Much of my research draws on data from understudied varieties of English (including my native Northwest British English) and Chinese (before taking up linguistics, I was living in China and studying Chinese).

My CV is here.
