I am currently a Lecturer at the Department of Linguistics and an Assistant on Academic Analytics and Assessment at the Office of the Provost at Stony Brook University.
My primary interests in linguistics are syntax, semantics and their interface, especially Binding Theory, Phase Theory, Architecture of the Grammar, Long-distance Phenomena, Word Order and Movement, Agreement, Switch-Reference. I also work on Syntax and Morphology of languages of Caucasus, especially on (Long Distance) Agreement, Control, and Reflexivization.
In addition, I have interests in teaching large general education linguistics courses. I have taught LIN 200: Language in the USA, a class introducing basics of linguistics and sociolinguistics to non-majors, since 2014 and is currently involved in a project dealing with converting this course into an online format.
In Fall 2018 I was teaching Undergraduate Syntax (LIN 311), and in Spring 2019 I will be teaching Graduate Syntax II (LIN 621).
