About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Washington Linguistics Department, working on morphosyntax and semantics, and computational methods in linguistic theory. I have a commitment to endangered languages, particularly those of the Americas.

My work uses 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. My dissertation involves work with the Nuuchahnulth language.

I am currently the lead TA for the department. My advisor is Emily Bender. You can find my CV here: [PDF].
