Assistant Professor Mia Gong

Mia Gong, currently finishing her Ph.D at Cornell, will be joining the department as an Assistant Professor in Fall of 2022. Mia’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.

Congrats, Mia, and welcome to Santa Cruz!
