I am a linguist with research interests in Algonquian languages, morphosyntax and polysynthesis.
Currently, I am a Research Associate at SOAS, London. I have a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Toronto (2012). My dissertation, entitled "The Syntax and Semantics of Stem Composition in Oji-Cree" explores the structure of the verb stem in Oji-Cree (a dialect of Ojibwe, an Algonquian language spoken in Canada and US).
My current theoretical research interests are morphosyntax of polysynthetic languages and the interaction of syntax with phonology and semantics. Some of the topics I have been working on are noun incorporation, causative formation, bi-partite verbs and the ordering and semantic of prefixal adverbial modifiers in Ojibwe.
I am also interested in general issues of language revitalization and documentation, and development of teaching materials for endangered languages.
