I’ve spent the last 15 years, give or take, as an academic. Most recently, as a tenured Associate Professor at the University of Maryland.
Prior to that, I spent about 10 years working as a software developer.
As of summer 2022, I have decided to leave academia. In brief, it’s my impression that linguistics departments at North American universities are for the most part no longer a particularly hospitable environment for the kind of academic research I used to do (theoretical syntax). It was therefore time to move on.
I’m not entirely sure about what the next chapter will be. It might have something to do with my previous career in software; it might be related to language, and it might not be. Stay tuned!
If you’re interested in stuff I produced while in academia, you can still access my old academic homepage, or check out the links under “academia” in the navbar, above.
