Theoretical and historical phonology, Old Norse philology, corpus linguistics, linguistic phylogenetics.
Originally from western Minnesota, my interests in the language sciences began in studying variation and attrition of heritage Norwegian speakers in the Midwest. I have a BA in linguistics and Scandinavian languages from the University of Minnesota and an MPhil/MA in Norse philology jointly from the University of Iceland and University of Oslo. I undertook my PhD in linguistics at the University of Edinburgh where I was the first recipient of the McIntosh-Patterson PhD Studentship from the Angus McIntosh Centre for Historical Linguistics. My main research interests lie in the intersection between historical/theoretical phonology and traditional Old Norse philology; using insights from phonological theory and typology to study in detail geographic and chronological variation in Nordic philological material. Alongside my work on Nordic languages, I am particularly interested in harmony processes and the insights harmony systems can provide on matters of phonological representations and the division of labour in phonology more generally.
