Assistant Professor of Cognitive, Linguistic and Psychological Sciences


I conduct research in linguistics, with a focus on argument structure, information structure, and discourse. I also do experimental work testing the hypotheses generated by my linguistic research. I work primarily on English, as spoken by typical adults, but am also a collaborator on a project documenting Moro, a language spoken in Sudan. I joined Brown in 2010 after leaving the University of California, San Diego, where I receieved a PhD in Linguistics and was a pre-doctoral training fellow at the Center for Research in Language.
