I am a Professor in Linguistics at the University of Tromsø, and a senior researcher at CASTL (Center for the Advanced Study of Theoretical Linguistics). I am interested in the syntax-semantics interface, especially with regard to verbal argument structure, tense, aspect and modality. The languages I have worked on include Scottish Gaelic, Bengali and English. I have recently become interested in psycho and and neurolinguistic aspects to meaning in language, and have just finished up a project doing experiments on the processing of tense and aspect.

I am just finished up a project called Modal Concepts and Compositionality funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

Here is a video of a popular science presentation I made in NewYork in connection with the ROOTs conference, in May 2015 on morphology and the universality of language. My bit starts about 30 minutes in and ends at 46 minutes.
I started blogging about linguistic matters a couple of years ago. You can access my old blog site here
