About Me

I’m a PhD candidate in Linguistics at McGill University, with interests in syntax and semantics.

My research investigates event structure, complex predicates, and modality, and is deeply informed by typology and linguistic fieldwork. I work with speakers of Hmong to describe and analyze their language.

In my in-progress dissertation, I examine the structure and meaning of complex predicates in Hmong (and what they can tell us about other languages). My co-supervisors are Jessica Coon and Luis Alonso-Ovalle.

I also teach courses in semantic theory and linguistic typology.
