Professor Mia Gong

Mia Gong, currently finishing her PhD at Cornell University, will be joining the department as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2022. Professor Gong's central area of research is theoretical syntax and the syntax-morphology interface. Her work brings to bear data from original fieldwork in Mongolic languages on such fundamental questions as the nature of phrasal movement and of linearization.

Congratulations, Mia, and welcome to Santa Cruz!
