My specializations are theoretical syntax and semantics, emphasizing the interface between them. My current project is an investigation into the structure and interpretation of roots and the representation of grammatical number with an emphasis on languages like Armenian, Turkish, and Persian which have optional classifier structures.
I achieved my B.A. at the University of Florida where I studied linguistics with a minor focus in anthropology. Much of my anthropological interests ventured into ethnography, where I largely worked on the study of cultural trauma and social memory/identity.
I am proud to serve this year as the elected Vice President of the Linguistics Society at UGA (LSUGA).
