About Me


I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT. I hold a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Chicago and was previously a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University. I am primarily interested in syntax and its interfaces. Most of my research focuses on indigenous languages of the Caucasus.
