I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. I am working with Dr. Andrea Berez-Kroeker and Dr. Bradley McDonnell on the National Science Foundation–funded project, EAGER: Data Science Literacy for Linguistics.
For the past several years, my research focus has been on language endangerment and language revitalization. I am also interested in historical linguistics, language typology, and morphology. Other interests include: Afroasiatic languages (e.g. Amazigh/Berber languages), Central Algonquian languages, animacy hierarchies, inverse voice, numeral systems, ethnomusicology language documentation, and writing systems, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to historical linguistics (collaboration with archaeology, geography, etc.).
