I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My broad theoretical research interests lie in syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. In pursuit of those interests, as well as interests in language documentation, I currently conduct fieldwork on Hawai'i Creole and, in conjunction with several fellow Banana Slugs, Santiago Laxopa Zapotec. Beyond linguistics, I enjoy playing music, reading novels, and watching baseball.
In Winter 2017, I'm the TA for Jim McCloskey's Structure of English (LING 120). My office hour is from 2:30-3:30 on Tuesdays at Stevenson Coffee House.
