About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Washington Linguistics Department, working on morphosyntax and computational methods grounded in linguistic theory and knowledge. I have a particular commitment to endangered languages, especially of the Americas.

My work to date involves using the HPSG formalism and the DELPH-IN toolset to analyze syntactico-semantic phenomena. I am most interested in using these technologies from the perspective of linguistic documentation and description. I am working on learning and developing resources for the Nuu-chah-nulth language.

I am currently the head TA for the department. My advisor is Emily Bender.
