About me

I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics and the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, working with Mans Hulden.

My research aims to answer questions about linguistic structure with computational methods. Those questions often come from the domains of morphology and typology. In my first qualifying paper I worked on modeling typological features with machine learning methods. I am also interested in computational semantics, especially distributional semantics.
