About me

Hi! I am a Junior Research Fellow in linguistics at Christ’s College, Cambridge. I work on syntax and its interfaces with morphology, semantics, phonology and the lexicon.

I completed my PhD at Yale University in 2020. My dissertation “Argument structure and argument-marking in Choctaw” looks at argument structure and its semantic and morphological correlates in Choctaw, a Muskogean language spoken in Mississippi and Oklahoma. As part of the research, I’ve spent time at the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians reservation, working with speakers to document and analyze the language.

Here’s my CV.
