I’m a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Rochester, where I work (or will work) largely in the Formal And CompuTational Semantics lab (FACTS.lab) headed by Aaron White.

I’m interested broadly in syntax and semantics, and computational models for understanding natural language. I am also interested in NLP tasks involving low-resource languages, and ways in which the analysis of them may be improved through linguistic knowledge.
