My academic affiliation
Since July 1st 2019 I am an ICREA research Professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona.
My linguistic affilication
I am a theoretical linguist, specializing in syntax and its interfaces.
I work broadly within the generative tradition.
I aim to bridge the gap to other traditions.
The big Questions I pursue
What is the relation between sound, meaning, and category?
What is the relation between language, thought, and communication?
What drives human interaction?
How does language fit into cognition?
How can we change the world?
It's not the language we want to understand.
It's the speaker
