I’m a first year graduate student in linguistics at MIT. I’m interested in semantics and its interfaces. In particular, I’m interested in aspect, modality, tense, and cross-linguistic variation therein.

I completed a BA in linguistics and a BA in philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I was advised by Seth Cable and Rajesh Bhatt. I then spent a year as a Baggett Fellow in the linguistics department at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I worked with Valentine Hacquard, Alexander Williams, Jeff Lidz, and Rachel Dudley.
