I am an assistant professor of Linguistics at Georgetown University. I carry out documentary linguistic work, which is informed by and contributes to linguistic theory. Specifically, I study phonology and its interfaces with syntax and morphology.

My research focuses on Kru languages, especially Guébie (Côte d'Ivoire). I have also worked on Amharic (Semitic, Ethiopia), Nouchi (urban youth language, Côte d'Ivoire), Dafing (Mande, Burkina Faso) and Moro (Kordofanian, Sudan).
