Much of myresearch, often co-authored, includes the syntax, semantics & pragmatics of (multiple) Wh-question formation, the grammar of pronouns (especially the view of certain pronominal elements as grammatical formatives, plus the syntax of clitics, resumption, derivational issues, binding & reconstruction), morpho-syntax (incl. the nature & role of formal features, but also modal verbs), diagnostics & types of movement (A/A', (anti-) locality, dislocation), clause structure (scrambling, discourse, X'-theory), non-finiteness (root infinitives, EPP-issues), computation (derivation vs. representation, multiple vs. unique specifiers, licensing of adjuncts etc.), predication (minimalist considerations, secondary predication constructions incl. small clauses), and more.
As for collaborators, I am lucky to have been able to work together, and mostly continue doing so, with Cedric Boeckx, Dalina Kallulli, Juan Carlos Castillo, Barbara Citko, John Drury, Ricardo Etxepare, Liliane Haegeman, Norbert Hornstein, Andrew Nevins, Jairo Nunes, Phoevos Panagiotidis, Stavroula Tsiplakou.
