I’m a Professor of Linguistics at the City University of New York (CUNY). My home campus is the College of Staten Island, where I teach in the Linguistics Program (within the English department). I also teach classes and work with graduate students in the Linguistics Program at the Graduate Center (also a CUNY campus). Doing my affiliation justice in one single line is therefore complicated! I most typically use this: City University of New York (College of Staten Island & The Graduate Center).
