I am a 5th year graduate student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My theoretical interests lie primarily in syntax, morphology, and prosody, and the interactions among them, with an empirical focus on Balkan and Slavic languages. Various issues in these areas form the basis of my dissertation (advised by Sandra Chung), which investigates the grammar of clitics and clitic doubling.
I am part of the collaborative research group Crosslinguistic Investigations in Syntax-Phonology (CrISP) and a member of the UCSC Experimental Syntax and Language Processing Lab. Prior to joining UCSC I graduated from Harvard University with a BA in Computer Science and a minor in Linguistics and was a research assistant at the Harvard Language Sciences Lab.
