About me

I’m a 3rd year 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 a member of the Yale Grammatical Diversity Project, and I co-organize the Syntax Reading Group.
