I have been focusing on morphology and phonology. My more recent work is computationally and mathematically inclined, focusing mostly on projects pertaining to the formal properties and unsupervised learning of linguistic structure.
At a more general level, my work is geared towards shedding light on the following questions:
- What formal properties does language bear?
- What amounts to a linguistic analysis?
- What does it mean for an analysis to be the best for some given data?
- What and how much do we assume when coming up with an analysis, and why (not)?
This year, I am coordinating the Workshop on Language, Cognition, and Computation.
