Welcome! I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Indiana University. I received my Ph.D. from The University of Chicago.

My research focuses on theoretical syntax and its interfaces with semantics and morphology.

My work concerns topics including relativization, clausal embedding, DP structure, degree constructions, and concord/agreement.

Much of my research draws from my fieldwork on Wá·šiw (Washo), an Indigenous language spoken around Lake Tahoe (dáʔaw).
I have also worked on German (and its dialects), Basaá, and Fijian.
