I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher 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. As part of the project, we are editing The Open Handbook of Linguistic Data Management, which will appear as the first volume in the MIT Press Open Handbooks in Linguistics series.
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.).
