Spring office hours (for Syntactic Structures):
I’m a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My interests broadly include syntax, the syntax-semantics interface, and psycholinguistics, but I am especially interested in the syntax of long-distance dependencies. I am also invested in the use of experimental methodologies to gain insight into grammatical patterns and representations.
Currently, I’m investigating extraction from relative clauses in English using experimental methodologies. I also work on Chamorro (Austronesian; Mariana Islands; 45,000 speakers) and am studying the syntax(-semantics) of the language’s head-internal relative clauses. In collaboration with Jed Pizarro-Guevara, I am also studying the syntax of relative clauses in Bisaya.
