I am a syntactician and a morphologist, with occasional forays into phonology. My work focuses on phenomena whose analysis requires reference to all of these modules, and often involves detailed investigation of their interaction. I got my start as a linguist focusing primarily on Russian and Slavic languages; since 2009, I have also been working on the under-described Turkic languages of Central Asia (primarily Uzbek).
