I am a fifth year graduate student in the department of linguistics at UC Berkeley. My research interests lie in semantics, syntax, and morphology. I approach questions in these areas primarily through the lens of Tiwa, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Assam, India.
My research interests include:
- Epistemic indefinites
- Mass/count distinction and number marking
- Attitude reports
- Case concord
- Clitic placement
