Keir Moulton

Assistant Professor


  • PhD, Linguistics, University of Massachusetts Amherst


Dr. Moulton wrote his Ph.D. dissertation on the syntax and semantics of complement clauses and attitude ascriptions. His research includes work on embedding structures generally, including relativization strategies cross-linguistically. Other areas of interest are binding and quantification, and syntactic processing, focusing on the division of labor between pragmatic and discourse preferences and syntactic parsing (working on ellipsis and quantification). He held a SSHRCC postdoctoral fellowship at McGill, and visiting positions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and UCLA.
