Current state of research and teaching activities
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.
