I am a 6th year, PhD candidate in linguistics at the University of Michigan.
I have broad research interests in linguistics, including areas such as morpho-syntax, the syntax-phonology interface, psycho/experimental linguistics, and field linguistics. My dissertation focuses on the morpho-syntax of imperatives in a number of languages; I also discuss the interaction between morpho-syntax and interpretation for imperatives. In addition to examining data in well-studied languages such as English and Japanese, I actively pursue research on lesser documented languages as well. My QRP research included (original) data from Hawaiian, while the dissertation includes data from Bhojpuri, an under-documented minority language of India.
