I'm Greg (he/him), a fourth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics and a Jackman Junior Fellow in the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto. My dissertation supervisor is Daphna Heller.

I work primarily within the intersections of semantics, typology and psycholinguistics. I'm interested in cross-linguistic patterns involving: (a) countability in the nominal and verbal domains, (b) nominal classification, and (c) referentiality; and I'm particularly invested in using experimental methods to probe questions about these phenomena. 

I am also broadly interested in language documentation, ethical fieldwork practices, and the description of understudied languages. Since 2019, I have been conducting descriptive and theoretical work on semantic aspects of Macuxi (Cariban), an indigenous language spoken in Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela, on topics including pluractionality, space and motion.

I'm an ongoing research assistant for the Language Profiles Project (PI: Avery Ozburn), as well as for the Inuttitut Verb Class Project (PI: Susana Bejar). In my department, I currently serve as co-Editor of the Toronto Working Papers in Linguistics and co-coordinator of the Language Description, Documentation and Revitalization (LDDR) group
