My research focuses on three primary areas: Indo-European linguistics (especially syntax), Oceanic linguistics (especially Micronesian), and general diachronic phonology/syntax (and their interface).

Within Indo-European linguistics I am particularly interested in exploiting so-called “Wackernagel's Law” phenomena to determine basic clause structure in archaic Indo-Iranian languages. Within Oceanic linguistics I am particularly interested in the historical phonology, morphology and syntax of Marshallese, Rotuman, and New Caledonian and Loyalty Island Languages.
