I am a Romanian born New Zealander, currently working as a lecturer in linguistics, at the University of Waikato. Previously, I have worked at the University of Reading, in Mark Pagel's evolutionary biology and applied statistics lab, and at the University of Auckland, mostly in Linguistics, but also in the Department of Psychology, for the Austronesian Database Language project, under the guidance of Prof. Russell Gray, and the Centre for Pacific Studies, on the grammar and dictionary project for Takuu language, under the guidance of Prof. Richard Moyle.

I have worked in various areas of theoretical linguistics, including morphology, syntax, corpus linguistics, and machine translation. My main current interests concern frequency-of-use effects in language. The projects I am involved in aim to understand frequency-of-use crosslinguistically (looking at the frequency of basic vocabulary words across different languages), in grammar (through typological work on causal/noncausal constructions), and in language contact (following the progress of Māori loanwords into New Zealand English). Additionally, I continue earlier work investigating the organisation of spoken grammar and the structuring of information in conversation, particularly with respect to cleft sentences and inferential constructions. My work is funded by the Marsden Grant of the Royal Society. I am the edior-in-chief of Te Reo - the Journal of the Linguistic Society of New Zealand.
