I am a sixth year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics. My research interests are in syntax and pragmatics, and language acquisition. My dissertation (co-advised by Kristen Syrett and Ken Safir) experimentally probes what licenses or bars co-construal relations in backwards anaphora, apart from c-command. I also work as a lab coordinator at Kristen's Rutgers Laboratory for Developmental Language Studies, supervising our undergraduate research assistants and dealing with the lab's daily issues. For more information about me and my work, please, follow the links on the left.


On April 26th, 2018, I gave a talk co-authored with Kristen Syrett: "Beyond Principle C: (Not)-at-issueness and plausibility influence acceptability of coconstrual" at the 54th Annual Meeting of the Chicago Linguistics Society at the University of Chicago, IL. [slides][abstract]
