Linguistics graduate student at UC Berkeley

I am a documentary linguist whose work is informed by and contributes to linguistic theory. I work on phonology and its interfaces with syntax and morphology, with specific interests in tone, prosody, word and affix order, and reduplication.

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) and Moro (Kordofanian, Sudan).
