Hello! I’m a 4th-year PhD student at the NYU Department of Linguistics. I’m primarily interested in syntax and morphology, especially in the domain of argument structure. I have also worked on the morphology-phonology interface, most recently with respect to tone.
My dissertation investigates verbal morphology and nominal licensing in causatives and applicatives. My advisor is Alec Marantz.
