My research focuses on syntax and how it interfaces with other aspects of linguistic structure, in particular with intonation and information structure.
I have worked with spoken and written data from languages including Hungarian, Japanese, and Slovenian, as well from different dialects of British English. In my research, I work within the theoretical framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG).
At the undergraduate level, I teach grammar and syntax to Prelims and FHS students in lectures, classes, and tutorials. I am proud to have been shortlisted three times in the category Most Acclaimed Lecturer (Humanities) at the OUSU Teaching Awards, and to have won the award in 2014 when I was a Departmental Lecturer in the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics.
