I’m a fifth-year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am advised by Maria Polinsky and Omer Preminger.
My research interests are in syntax, morphology, and semantics, focusing on Algonquian and Kartvelian languages. More specifically, I am interested in complex agreement systems, roots and the structure of verbal stems, negation, modality, and indexical shifting.
Before coming to UMD, I received an MA in Linguistics through the Individualized (INDI) program at Concordia University, where I also received a BA Honours in the Linguistics program. Under the supervision of Alan Bale, Dana Isac, and Charles Reiss, I investigated the Nishnaabemwin (Algonquian) direct/inverse system and non-surfacing segments in underlying phonological representations.
