Dept. of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution

Main Focus

My research interests include language documentation, historical linguistics, language endangerment, and morphosyntax, with areal and genetic emphases on Papuan and Austronesian languages. I have also worked on Indo-European diachronic syntax and cultural reconstruction. My current projects include the historical reconstruction and classification of several severely endangered and under-described languages of the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea. This research is largely based on my field work conducted over the past three years.
