I'm a PhD student in the department of linguistics at the University of Connecticut . Before that I was a graduate student in the philosophy department at UConn. I received my BA in philosophy at the University of Toronto .
My main areas of research is in theoretical linguistics, primarily syntax and its interfaces, semantics, and morphology. I am for the most part interested in Turkic languages, in particular, Uyghur. In terms of topics, I am interested in case, agreement, and movement. Lately, I have been thinking about how movement affects interpretation and how various languages encode semantic properties through movement such as definiteness.
