I'm a third-year graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA.

My main research interests lie in phonology, especially its interface with morphology. I use experimental and computational methods to understand how people acquire and represent (morpho)phonological knowledge. I'm also interested in Semitic languages and Arabic in particular.

Recent updates:

  • I gave a talk with Claire Moore-Cantwell titled "Modeling grammatical breakdown under processing load" at CogSci 2022.

  • I'm conducting a wug test to follow up with my Egyptian Arabic lexicon study. Preliminary results were presented at ASAL 35. If you know someone who might be interested in participating in this study, feel free to contact me!
