Welcome! I am a linguist and fieldworker.

I'm currently a post-doctoral researcher at The University of Manchester.
I received my Ph.D. in 2018 in Linguistics from The University of Chicago.


My research focuses on theoretical syntax and its interfaces with semantics and morphology.

My work concerns topics including relativization, clausal embedding, DP structure, degree constructions, and concord/agreement.

Much of my research draws from my fieldwork on Washo (Wá:šiw), an Indigenous language spoken around Lake Tahoe (dáʔaw).
Some of my other research is based on Basaá, Fijian, and German.
