Specializations: Syntactic Theory, Celtic Linguistics, Morphology,

My research revolves around various topics within the Minimalist Principles and Parameters approach to syntactic theory including phrase structure, copular constructions, case theory, word order (especially verb initial languages). The past 6 years I have been leading a team investigating the syntax, phonology and phonetics of Modern Scottish Gaelic. I am the author of numerous articles and 13 books. In my off hours, I'm usually off doing international folk dancing or square dancing.

I am the Dean of the Graduate College, where I oversee both the day to day operations of admissions, graduate student services, fellowships, scholarships, the Graduate Center, and research and policy for graduate studies at the University. See here for the highlights from my strategic plan for Graduate education. I also oversee the 16 Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs).
