- Visiting Assistant Professor of Linguistics, Linguistics
I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the department of linguistics. I love teaching linguistics because linguistics interfaces with so many different fields, from philosophy to computer science. My research focuses on syntax, and how this determines and is determined by other parts of grammar. I am also interested in Polynesian linguistics and semantics.
