I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Ottawa. My research primarily focuses on the morphosyntax of natural languages, especially agreement phenomena, within the framework of Generative Grammar. My empirical investigations have concentrated on Algonquian languages in general, and Ojibwe in particular. Within theoretical linguistics, I am also interested in the interfaces between syntax and phonology, and syntax and semantics.
Other academic interests of mine include language evolution (biological, as opposed to language change), philosophy of science, the history of linguistics, and linguistics pedagogy.
I am also proud to have been a founding member of the Canadian Language Museum and currently serve on the board of directors. My other responsibilities include the coordination of the Syntax-Semantics Lab at uOttawa and the secretariat of the Atlantic Provinces Linguistics Association.
