I specialize in semantics, syntax, and neurolinguistics, using theoretical linguistic insights as the basis for hypotheses about the processing of language in the brain. I work in the NYU Neuroscience of Language Lab (NELLab) with Liina Pylkkänen on the neural bases of the semantic processing of argument structure. When not looking at pretty brains, I do theoretical work on the syntax-semantics interface at the overlap of the Semantics Group, the Syntax Research Group, and the Morphology Reading Group, where I work on the semantics of inflectional morphology (mainly viewpoint aspect and its connection to adpositional meaning in Mandarin Chinese, and number and definiteness in American English).
