My current work is focused on the documentation of Asimjeeg Datooga (Southern Nilotic, Tanzania), through a grant sponsored by the Endangered Languages Documentation Programme. Previously I have conducted original research on elements of diachronic syntax in the Luo (Western Nilotic) and Koman families and the phonology of Maa (Eastern Nilotic).
