Research Interests: Syntax, Morphology, Interfaces, Turkic Languages

I am third-year PhD student interested in syntax and its interfaces with morphological, phonological, and semantic systems; especially with regards to how they constrain the range of cross-linguistic variety in phenomena such as affixation and cliticization mechanisms, the availability of different types of ellipsis, the realization of agreement and concord, and linearization of syntactic structures. My current empirical focus tends towards (micro)-comparison within Turkic languages with regards to these theoretical topics. I completed my B.A. in Linguistics at Stanford University in 2020
