Thomas Graf

PhotoAssociate Professor
Ph.D. 2013, University of California, Los Angeles

Thomas Graf's research operates at the intersection of theoretical linguistics and  computer science. His main interest is in the structural complexity of syntax, morphology, and  phonology, its implications for processing and acquisition, and how empirical  phenomena such as island effects arise from the complexity limits of natural  language. In his research Graf has drawn on data from a wide range of languages  including English, German, Icelandic, Cairene Arabic and American Sign  Language. He received his M.A. from the University of Vienna and his   Ph.D. from UCLA.
