I'm a third-year PhD student at Stony Brook University in the Linguistics Department. I'm also affliated with the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS). My research interests revolve around computational phonology, mathematical linguistics and formal language theory. I'm also working on tonal grammar of an understudied language of Cameroon, Shupamem. Since last summer I have also been engaged in a research project on how language signals cognitive state. Since then I've been working on developing a corpus annotated for common ground.
I defended my first qualifying paper on the Common Ground corpus!
See you soon at NASSLLI 2022!
I received a full scholarship to attend the African Linguistics School (ALS 6) in Porto Novo, Benin from July 18-30.
I presented my work on developing the Common Ground Corpus at the Student Seminar series at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at SBU [slides]
I gave a talk on Tonal Polarity in Shupamem nouns at the Annual Conference of African Linguistics (ACAL 53) [slides]
I presented at Eighteen Sigmorphon Workshop [slides]
I started working on a new project on how language signals cognitive state. PI: Owen Rambow
I volunteered to teach a session on finite-state transducers at Summer Youth Camp for Computational Linguistics (SYCCL)
