I am an Irish citizen, earned my BA at University College Dublin and my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. I have held positions at University College Dublin, MIT, UC San Diego and UC Santa Cruz.

I work in linguistic theory (especially syntax) with a focus on the Irish language and on non-standard, often stigmatized, varieties of English.  I have also worked on issues of language extinction and revitalization.

Syntax, semantics, sociolinguistics, Irish.
