I'm a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. My main areas of research are semantics, syntax, and language processing. My dissertation is on a general theory of viewpoint aspect, genericity, and mass nouns and plurals that recruits from the tools of algebraic semantics. Click here for a summary of the project (accessible to non-linguists). I also work on phenomena involving ellipsis.

See my cv (last updated March 17, 2017) for a list of papers and presentations. See below for links to papers, handouts, and posters.

I'm affiliated with the Language Processing Lab, directed by Ming Xiang.
