My research focuses primarily on the semantics and pragmatics of underdescribed Bantu languages, both within particular languages and as typological and contact phenomena. I have particular interest in expressions of tense, aspect, and modality. 

My teaching focuses on these phenomena, and on the best methods and practices for eliciting them.
