I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and hold the Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Knowledge and Transmission of the Inuit Language. My areas of research include syntax and morphology, as well language documentation and revitalization. My work bears on the the nature of polysynthesis in the Inuit language, Inuktut, particularly in Inuktitut and Inuinnaqtun dialect areas, and includes the study of lexical and functional categories, noun incorporation, verbal agreement, and the linearization and formation of words. I co-edited a dictionary of Inuinnaqtun with Emily Kudlak that was published by Nunavut Arctic College Media.
