Profile

Post-doctoral Fellow: Center for Cognitive Science, MIT (1986-1987)
Invited Fellow: ATR International (Summer 1999)
Japan Foundation Fellow: University of Tokyo (October 2000-July 2001)My research is primarily concerned with the nature and functioning of the faculty of language, a biologically endowed human cognitive capacity. I am particluarly interested in constructing an explanatory theory of invariant principles of the human language faculty, as they interact with the system of parameters. The nature of these parameters (their emergence and interconnections) is also my central concern.(Subject of research)
General linguistic theory, theory of parameters, comparative syntax, mathematical model of language acquisition

Research Interests
