I am a Ph.D scholar of Linguistics at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi, India. For my doctoral thesis, I am investigating how the grammatical modules of phonology, morphology and syntax interact with one another by investigating the phonological domains formation in Meiteilon, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Manipur and other parts of north-east India. 


Specifically, I am investigating the formation of Prosodic Word in Meiteilon to examine which information from which module(s) (among the above mentioned) play a crucial role during the domain formation. In addition to the domain of Prosodic Word, I am also interested in understanding the mechanism of constructing Phonological Phrases in the language.


My broad research interest includes understanding the nature of Morphosyntax-Phonology interface, morpho-syntax, morpho-phonology, syntax, and phonology.
