I am a linguist working on Australian languages spoken in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia: Dalabon, Barunga Kriol, and other languages spoken in the same region (Gunwinyguan family). While my research is primarily in linguistics, I also have some background in philosophy , as well as anthropological interests. My linguistic research deals with expressivity and the encoding of emotions in language.

I am currently a Senior Lecturer at The University of Western Australia‘s School of Social Sciences. I am also an Affiliate with the Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, the Australian National University (Linguistics Department of the College of Asia and the Pacific), and The University of Sydney (Department of Linguistics).
