I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics and a Jackman Junior Fellow in the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto. I work primarily within the intersections of semantics, typology and psycholinguistics. My dissertation committee consists of Suzi Lima, Barend Beekhuizen (co-supervisors) and Myrto Grigoroglou.

Via experimental approaches like artificial language learning, my work investigates the cross-linguistic distribution of the countability and multiplicity of events and sub-events, and whether these typological patterns can be attributed to cognitive biases on the individual level. 

I am also broadly interested in language documentation, ethical fieldwork practices, and the description of understudied languages. Since 2019, I have been conducting descriptive and theoretical work on semantic aspects of Macuxi (Cariban), an indigenous language spoken in Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela, on topics including pluractionality, space and motion.

I'm a research assistant for the Language Profiles Project (PI: Avery Ozburn), as well as for the Inuttitut Verb Class Project (PI: Susana Bejar). In my department, I currently serve as co-Editor of the Toronto Working Papers in Linguistics and co-coordinator of the Language Description, Documentation and Revitalization (LDDR) group
