I'm currrently a PhD student in Linguistics at Cornell University. My research focuses on historical linguistics, specifically historical syntax in Indo-European languages and Japanese, though I also do work on diachronic phonology and morphology.


I received a Master's degree in Linguistics, specializing in historical linguistics and syntax, from the University of Georgia in 2014.

My Bachelor's was in Accounting from Furman University in 2007.

Teaching Experience

I taught Japanese 1001 and 1002 at the University of Georgia from 2013 to 2014.
