I am an Associate Professor of Linguistics and Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University
of Southern California.
I received my Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000. From 1998 to 2000, I worked as a research associate in
the Brain and Language Lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Georgetown University. I have been at USC since the fall of 2000.
My work focuses on syntax and on the interface
between syntax and semantics. It employs formal modeling, cross-linguistic
comparison from a synchronic and diachronic perspective, and experimental
methods. Among my main ongoing projects are:
· the grammar and
processing of degree expressions
· the grammar of person
· the grammar of tense
· the historical syntax of South Slavic
