My research explores the structural properties of language, with an emphasis on bringing data from typologically diverse languages to bear on contemporary linguistic theories. Such investigations often involve detailed linguistic fieldwork with native speakers of the relevant languages, which in many cases are understudied and underdocumented. I've worked on various languages and language families, including: Basque; (modern) Hebrew; Kaqchikel, Q’anjob’al (Mayan); Sakha (Turkic); Kinyarwanda, Shi (Bantu); Oromo (Cushitic); Georgian (Kartvelian). I am the Associate Director of the Guatemala Field Station.
