Hello! I’m a PhD student (ABD) at the NYU Department of Linguistics.
My main research interests are in syntax and morphology, especially in the domain of argument structure. My dissertation (in progress) investigates verbal morphology and nominal licensing in causatives and applicatives. My advisor is Alec Marantz.
I also have an interest in phonology. I have worked on biases in sound change and the morphology-phonology interface, most recently with respect to tone.
How to pronounce my name: [jɪˈnɪŋ ˈniː]
