Tessa Scott


I am currently a third year graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley. My main interests are in syntax, morphology, syntax-phonology interface, and Bantu and Mayan 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.

When I'm not linguistic-ing, I spend most of my time as a weightlifter. I love drinking coffee, meditating, reading about astronomy, astro-physics, and self-growth psychology, and my problematic fav is King Pin donuts.
