My primary area of specialization is in phonological theory, in particular the investigation of the role of contrast, lexical phonology, and phonology-morphology interface. I also have a strong interest in the interaction of phonology and phonetics and have done work in experimental phonetics. Another area where I have expertise is in formal semantics, where I have published work on reflexivity. I specialize in Slavic languages with particular emphasis on Polish.
