I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Illinois. My interest in Linguistics comes from an interest in learning languages. My goal is to study theoretical linguistics while maintaining a strong base in typology, and work toward a general understanding of how language works, or more specifically how language can work. My research centers around the relationship between Morphosyntax and Semantics, with connections to other areas such as Historical Linguistics and Language Acqusition.
