I'm an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at MIT, where I co-direct the Language Acquisition Lab. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Lab for Developmental Studies at Harvard. I received my PhD in Linguistics from MIT in 2018.

The primary focus of my research is first language acquisition. In particular, I look at children's developing understanding of what structures are licit in their language, how those structures are interpreted, and how they may be used in conversation. I also moonlight as a syntactician.
