I’m a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at University of Maryland, advised by Jeff Lidz and Norbert Hornstein. For more information about my research, see my research page.
Outside of linguistics, I’m also interested in web development, programming, and system administration. And I really like coffee. I worked as a barista, off-and-on, for a few years at the Dunn Bros at the Smith Douglas More House, now known as Smith.
