I am a general linguist with a primary focus on the structure and complexity of inflectional and grammatical systems. My current research approaches these issues from the standpoint of contemporary word and paradigm models, using analytic tools and insights drawn from information-theoretic and discriminative perspectives.
I have secondary interests in the properties of sound systems and aspects of semantics that interact closely with grammar, along with interests in quantitative and computational models.
My main areal interests fall within Germanic, Finnic, Slavic and Kartvelian.
