I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA. My research focuses on syntax and the syntax-semantics interface.

Much of my work concerns the interpretation of syntactic movement and the nature of reconstruction effects. I am also interested in morphological case (particularly in Finnish) and quirky subjects. Recently, I have been working on embedding, crossclausal dependencies, and the Williams Cycle.

With collaborators, I have also worked on tough-constructions, NPI grammaticality illusions, and Hindi-Urdu binding.
