I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Stony Brook University Department of Linguistics.

My primary research interests lie in morphology and its interfaces with phonology and syntax. More specifically,

  • morphologically conditioned consonant epenthesis
  • characterization of morphological processes as logical transductions
  • morphophonological vowel fronting in Serbo-Croatian

I am an editor of All Things Morphology: Its independence and its interfaces, with Sedigheh Moradi, Marcia Haag, and Janie Rees-Miller. The volume is dedicated to Mark Aronoff; it is expected to come out in September 2021.

I am also a part of the Epenthesis research group led by Lori Repetti. We are organizing a workshop on epenthesis (and beyond) in September 2021 – program coming soon!

In addition, I have worked on the stress system of Kuikuro (Cariban) with Michael Becker.
