I am a PhD student in Linguistics at UMass Amherst. I specialize in syntax, and my current research interests include ellipsis and ellipsis-like constructions, VP-movement, and related phenomena such as do-support and verb-stranding. I am also interested in morphology and its interfaces with Syntax and Phonology.
