Spring office hours (for Syntax 2):
Friday, 2:30pm-3:30pm, Stevenson 225.

I'm a third-year Ph.D. student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My interests broadly include syntax, the syntax-semantics interface, and psycholinguistics.

Currently, I am investigating the processing of Complex NP islands in English, with a focus on the behavior of the parser in contexts that have been found to make Complex NP islands more transparent for extraction. I have worked mostly on Chamorro (Austronesian; Mariana Islands; 45,000 speakers), and have recently been studying the syntax of the language's head-internal relative clauses.
