I am currently a PhD student in Linguistics at UMass Amherst.
I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2014 with a major in Linguistics and a minor in Computer Science.
My theoretical focus in linguistics is in semantics, the study of meaning in language. I use mathematical tools like logic and type theory to describe how sentences acquire meaning.
Much of my work focuses on under-resourced languages. I conduct fieldwork in Oaxaca, Mexico on San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec.
I'm also interested in computational and experimental approaches to natural language.
