I am a graduate student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My research interests lie primarily in syntax, morphology, and prosody, as well as the interactions among them, with an empirical focus on Balkan and Slavic languages. Various issues in these areas and, in particular, questions about the syntax-morphophonology interface form the basis of my dissertation (advised by Sandra Chung), which I defended in December, 2013.
I am a member of the UCSC Experimental Syntax and Language Processing Lab and part of the collaborative research group Crosslinguistic Investigations in Syntax-Phonology (CrISP). Prior to joining UCSC I graduated from Harvard University with an AB in Computer Science and a minor in Linguistics and was a research assistant at the Harvard Language Sciences Lab.
