A warm welcome to Adam Jardine, who joined the department in September, 2016!
Adam received his Ph.D. degree from Delaware University in 2016. His dissertation provides support for the hypothesis that surface well-formedness in phonological tone patterns is governed by language-specific, local constraints over au- tosegmental representations..
Adam has already become very popular among graduate students. He started fast with teaching two courses this semester, Phonology III and Qualifying Paper Workshop!
We thank graduate students and the faculty who put a lot of effort to pick the best candidate for the position; and, we thank Adam for choosing to join us at Rutgers Linguistics. Welcome Adam!
