About me

I'm a 3rd year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics of the University of Pennsylvania. I work on computational modeling of Language Change and Language Acquisition. I'm interested in phonological and syntactic change, acquisition of syntactic rules and parallels between linguistic and genetic change at the population level.

I have been lucky to be advised by wonderful people in the last years. Present and past advisers include Don Ringe, Charles Yang, Giuseppe Longobardi, Luca Bortolussi and Andrea Sgarro.

I love Python.
