I work primarily on phonology and morphology. A primary aspect of my research is to investigate the potential of multiprecedence phonology of the type of Raimy (2000) to be applied to other issues of morphology such as suppletion, locality, non-local phonology, and aspects of the syntax-phonology interface.
Additional projects have involved probing the granularity of phonological representation through artificial language learning experiment; breaking down the operations of phonology into their minimal logical components in order to find the set of operations that can account for all phonology working mostly with a substance-free approach, and evaluating the formal properties of tonal phenomena.
