  About

Here is my CV.

I am dedicated to enriching the Linguistics community at Penn through the Penn Graduate Linguistics Society. Previously, I participated in Linguistics Outreach through a "Living Lab®" collaboration at a local children's museum (The Please Touch museum).

For my undergraduate degree I attended the University of Edinburgh. At Edinburgh, I was involved with the Edinburgh University Linguistics & English Language Society and a Linguistics Education Outreach Group which liaised with The United Kingdom Linguistics Olympiad.
