Welcome

I am PhD candidate in the Linguistics department at UMass Amherst. I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2014 with a major in Linguistics and a minor in Computer Science.

My research explores the semantics of natural language from a variety of methodological frameworks: fieldwork on under-documented languages of North America; experimental work on temporal reference; and computational modeling of perspective.

I spent last summer interning in the Speech and Language group at BBN Technologies.
