I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. I am working with Dr. AndreaBerez-Kroeker and Dr. Bradley McDonnell on the National Science Foundation–funded project, EAGER: Data Science Literacy for Linguistics.

For the past several years, my research focus has been on language endangerment and language revitalization. In addition to these, my primary research interests are historical linguistics, language typology, and morphology.

Other interests include: Afroasiatic languages (e.g. Amazigh/Berber languages), Central Algonquian languages, animacy hierarchies, inverse voice, numeral systems, ethnomusicology language documentation, and writing systems, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to historical linguistics (collaboration with archaeology, ethnography, etc.).
