Version 2I’m a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at NYU. My advisor is Maria Gouskova.

My research focuses on phonology and its interfaces with morphology and phonetics.

I do fieldwork in Eastern Indonesia on Uab Meto, an understudied Austronesian language. I contribute to language documentation efforts and pursue theoretical research on metathesis, coalescence, and the syntax-phonology interface. Other recent projects of mine include infixation, Burmese tone, and clitic doubling in Pama-Nyungan.

Prior to coming to NYU, I did my BA in Linguistics at the University of Chicago, where I worked with Karlos Arregi.
