Matt is a fifth-year PhD student in the Linguistics Department. He grew up in London and graduated with a BA from Cambridge University in 2013. His research is in syntactic theory, with a particular focus on case-marking and verbal agreement, and how languages employ these tools to convey relations between events and their participants. As part of his research, he spends time in Mississippi working with speakers of Choctaw, an indigenous American language, to document and analyze the grammar of their language. He looks forward to helping students in the social sciences, or any other field, with their research papers and presentations.
