About Me


I am a Ph.D student in Northwestern University’s Department of Linguistics. Before moving to the Chicago area, I lived in Northern Minnesota where I taught courses in linguistics, writing, and journalism at University of Minnesota Duluth.

I have many hobbies, but I especially love to be outdoors, make photographs, ride trains, and write.

Research Interests

At Northwestern, I study intonation and meaning, and so my research connects with topics in prosody, morphosyntax, and psycholinguistics. In the past I have worked on topics in binding theory and metonymy, and I have conducted fieldwork on Iron Range English.
