I'm a third-year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics and a Jackman Junior Fellow in the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto. I work primarily within semantics and psycholinguistics: how information is encoded cross-linguistically, and how this intersects with cognition. I am interested in using theoretical and experimental approaches to investigate issues in countability and plurality in the nominal and verbal domains, and how they surface typologically. Languages I have worked on thus far include: Macuxi (Carib), colloquial Singapore English and Malay/Indonesian (Austronesian). I am also interested in language documentation, ethical fieldwork practices, and the description of understudied languages.
