My current research focuses on several topics in the syntax of Telugu, a Dravidian language of South India.  This work is part of a larger project on the syntax and phonology of Telugu.  My doctoral dissertation presented an analysis of Telugu reflexive-middle verbs.  I have also worked on Rotuman phonology and the theoretical aspects of phonological acquisition.
