Research Interests

My interest in Linguistics comes from an interest in learning languages. My goal is to study theoretical linguistics while maintaining a strong base in typology, and work toward a general understanding of how language works, or more specifically how language can work. Semantics fascinates me, but especially in the context of the other aspects of the field as well. With any extra time, I enjoy studying languages even if I don't become fluent. Learning to think, even a little, in a language other than English is a very rewarding experience. Please see my website (link below) for more information.
