Currently, I am a Collaborator on a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada's Insight Grant entitled "Grammatical vs semantic features: the semantics-morphology mapping, and its consequences for syntax.", PI, Ivona Kučerová, McMaster University. I investigate linguistic structures in various languages including: English, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Czech, Italian, German. My research focus is theoretical linguistics - my current research concentrates on the licensing of nominal gender agreement (in collaboration with Ivona Kučerová), multiple remnant ellipsis, relative clause structure. In the past, I have lectured and participated in research projects at Harvard and MIT on Aphasia, especially Agrammatic Disorders, Sentence Processing and Language Acquisition.
