As of January 2012, he is Lecturer in the Department of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex, UK.

His research is cross-disciplinary in nature, concerned broadly with what empirical evidence from sentence processing can tell us about grammar and the cognitive processes that affect comprehension throughout discourse. One line of research considers the relationship between how a mental representation is formed and how it is retrieved from memory subsequently, particularly within the domain of language comprehension. A second line of research concerns the relationship between on-line processing difficulty and judgments of acceptability and grammaticalization. Other research interests include referential form choice, discourse planning and production, resumptive pronouns, and experimental syntax.
