I am a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University in the Linguistics Department. I received my PhD from the University of Chicago and previously taught linguistics as a lecturer at UCSD. My work focuses on semantics and its interface with morphology and syntax, and relies heavily on typological considerations and data from less commonly studied languages. I have been conducting fieldwork on the Senegambian language Wolof since 2010. My dissertation research was funded by the Mellon Foundation and NSF grant BCS-132434. From March 2011-March 2013, I was the Bloch Fellow of the Linguistic Society of America. You can find some of my research here, or on Academia.edu.
