I am a syntactician whose research focuses primarily on the interaction between syntax, morphology, and semantics. Icelandic is the language that I have investigated most closely and I am currently working on a large-scale project which investigates the distribution of ditransitive verbs in Icelandic and Faroese. I am the co-PI, along with Jóhannes Gísli Jónsson at the University of Iceland. The rest of the project team is comprised of Hjalmar Petersen at the University of the Faroe Islands, Einar Freyr Sigurðsson at the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies, Jim Wood at Yale, and Nicole Dehé at the University of Konstanz. This project is funded by Rannís, the Icelandic Research Council. I have also worked with several students to investigate various constructions in Mandarin. I worked with Lydia Ding and Yining Rebecca Liu on infinitival clauses in Mandarin and with Yitong Chen and Nathaniel Chew on aspect markers. Below is a sample of my work. Lecture notes for a couple of my courses can be found to the left.
