About me

Latest: the handout for my NYU presentation “Characterizing the causative alternation in Choctaw”

I’m a PhD student in Linguistics at Yale University. I’m interested in everything syntactic, including morphosyntax, the syntax-semantics interface and the syntax-phonology interface. My advisor is Jim Wood.

I work mainly on English and on Choctaw, a Muskogean language spoken in Mississippi and Oklahoma. I’m also a member of the Yale Grammatical Diversity Project.
