I work with both graduate and undergraduate students on various projects related to historical linguistics and language documentation. I usually hire new undergrad students at the start of the fall semester. If you’re interested, please send me an email with some information about what linguistics classes you’ve taken and what your interests are. Note that I can usually only hire Yale students. I do work with summer students from time to time, but if I’m taking summer students, I will advertise.
For students who are interested in applying to Yale’s graduate program, please see the general information at ling.yale.edu. Note that students in the US apply to departments, not to work with individual faculty. Your application won’t be advantaged (or disadvantaged) if you contact me in advance. You are welcome to write with specific questions, and I’ll do my best to answer. It’s often difficult to answer very general queries about the lab or current work – that’s what this web site is for! Here’s some advice about applying to grad school, both in general and to work with me in particular (click the date link for the full thread):
Here’s a thread on applying to work with me in grad school. First, I’m excited to hear you’re interested in fieldwork, language change, and things like that. You’ve come to the right place! Here’s a thread with some hopefully useful info
