Hi! I’m a fifth year graduate student in the UCLA linguistics department. My research interests are in syntax and anything syntax-related. Currently, I am falling in love with Northeastern Neo-Aramaic languages (especially Senaya and Zakho) and working on my dissertation, which explores theoretical aspects of the syntax of these languages. When I’m not doing linguistics, I’m running, reading, baking, or spending time with friends and family. Above I’m pictured at a falconry during a trip I took to Scotland last year.
