About me

P1160653 copy


I like to call myself a diachronic typologist. I use phylogenetic comparative methods to study typological diversity and change within language families, including the Indo-European, Austronesian, and Niger-Congo language families. My main domains of interest are typology and historical linguistics , especially research that provides a synthesis of these two linguistic subfields.
