Tessa Scott


I am currently a fourth year graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley. My main interests are in syntax, morphology, syntax-phonology interface, and Mayan and Bantu languages. You can find out more about my work on my research page. Prior to coming to Berkeley, I completed my BA in linguistics in 2016 at the University of Kansas.

Outside of my work, I spend most of my time as a weightlifter. I love drinking coffee, meditating, reading pop science and playing with my cat.
