About me

Latest: the slides for my UMass Amherst colloquium talk “Internal arguments disguised as external arguments: Lessons from an active alignment system”.

Hi! 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 dissertation, advised by Jim Wood,  is on argument structure and its morphological and semantic correlates in Choctaw, a Muskogean language spoken in Mississippi and Oklahoma.

In Fall 2020 I will be taking up a Junior Research Fellowship at Christ’s College, Cambridge University.
