Research summary

Over the past years I have focused on the questions of what the universal properties of elliptical constructions are, whether there is syntactic structure at the ellipsis site, and how ellipsis interacts with syntactic displacement. I am also very interested in universal properties of word order. I address these questions within the Chomskyan tradition in linguistics.
