I am a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University in the Linguistics Department. I received my PhD from the University of Chicago in 2015 and previously taught linguistics as a lecturer at UCSD (2014-2015). 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 on the language 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.
