My name is Byron and I am an assistant professor in Princeton University Program in Linguistics.
My research can be described most generally as investigating linguistic data at the interfaces, focusing primarily on theoretical syntax and prosody: how the two relate and diverge, and how they interact with how they interact with semantics and morphology.
My research in syntax has primarily concerned formal properties of reflexive anaphora and questions related to relation to argument structure.
Prosodically, my research has investigated the distribution of phrasal stress and intonational phonology, and the types of meaning communicated by intonation.
As for the latter domain, of intonational meaning, a multi-institutional research time I am the PI for (co-PIs: Alejna Brugos, Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, Sunwoo Jeong, Nanette Veilleux) we were awarded a multi-year NSF research grant in 2021, for a project entitled "Exploring Variation in English Intonational Acoustic Phonetics from Grammatical Perspectives".
