About me:

I'm a current PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. Broadly, my research interests encompass phonetics, phonology, and the linguistics of sign languages. In my current research, I focus on various types of reduction processes as they occur across different parts of the lexicon of American Sign Language.


Before starting my graduate work, I received my BA at Swarthmore College, with a major in Linguistics and a minor in Music.
