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 Ken Safir and Kristen Syrett) experimentally probes what licenses or bars co-construal relations in backwards anaphora, apart from c-command. I also work as a lab manager 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 below.


On October 7, 2017, I gave a talk co-authored with Kristen Syrett: "Experimental evidence of pragmatic plausibility and processing in acceptable Principle C violations" at Mid-Atlantic Colloquium of Studies in Meaning (MACSIM VII) at Georgetown University, Washington, DC.


On January 6, 2018, I will be giving a talk co-authored with Kristen Syrett: "The influence of pragmatic plausibility and processing in judgments of ungrammatical backwards anaphora" in the Psycho-Pragmatics/Syntax session at LSA 2018, Salt Lake City, UT.
