ABOUT

Linguistics

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student of linguistics at McGill University. My primary research interests comprise theoretical syntax and morphology, and their interface with phonology. Broader questions that my research is concerned with include syntactic and morphological locality and their relation to phonological domains.

Web-Development

I also have an interest in web/software development. Some languages that I have a particular interest in include HTML/CSS, JavaScript and LaTeX.
