Biography

I am a morphologist who uses corpus-based and experimental methods to investigate connections between morphological structure and the lexicon. I am currently investigating the complexity inflectional systems typologically (with Andrea D. Sims), the role of irregularity in inflectional complexity, and the influence of inflectional structure on lexical access in Russian nouns.
