I am a PhD Candidate in Linguistics at the CUNY Graduate Center. I research the nature of children’s early linguistic representations as well as issues concerning the semantics/pragmatics interface. I currently work with Sam Alxatib, Virginia Valian, and Sandeep Prasada on these topics.

Current Studies

I’m currently running an online study looking at how 4 and 5-year-olds enrich the meaning of quantity and logical words (some, all, or, and, etc.). If you have a child who predominantly speaks English and is between the ages of 4 and 5, we’d love to have them take part. Please contact me here if you’re interested.
