Brief Bio:
In my research, I explore the nature of the human language from the generative perspective, specializing in the areas of syntax, language acquisition, and Slavic linguistics. In previous works, I have studied topics such as A'-movement, ellipsis, secondary predication, and child language acquisition of those phenomena. My current research interests are in the domain of grammatical case, with a focus on the correlations of case and aspect.
