I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Linguistics and Cognitive Science department at Pomona College and a Lecturer in the Linguistics department at UCLA.
I teach courses in a range of areas of linguistics (phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and historical linguistics). My research focuses on semantics and pragmatics; below are some recent publications and projects.
