I am a postdoc in Linguistics at Aarhus Universitet, housed in the Interacting Minds Centre. Previously, I was a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University (2015-2018) and taught linguistics as a lecturer at UCSD (2014-2015). I received my PhD from the University of Chicago in 2015. My research focuses on meaning in natural language (semantics and pragmatics), and often involves linguistic fieldwork and computational methods. My dissertation research was funded by the Mellon Foundation and the National Science Foundation (NSF grant BCS-132434).
