Hi! I am a research associate affiliated with the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. I graduated from MIT with a PhD in linguistics and then spent some time in the Department of English Language and Literature at NUS and at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS). I work on syntax and its interfaces. I am particularly interested in the nature of syntactic locality, and how much non-syntactic information the syntax may make reference to.
