I am a second year post-graduate student of linguistics in the Department of Linguistics of The University of Chicago. I am interested in model-theoretic semantics and its interfaces, especially with syntax (formal grammars). I am interested in applying techniques from mathematics (algebra & logic) and computer science (algorithmic & statistical machine learning) to problems of language modeling.

Areas of interest

  • compositional semantics: connectives, NPIs, quantifiers, temporality
  • syntax: ellipsis, binding theory
  • syntax/semantics/phonetics: focus, suspended affixation

Languages I work on: Albanian, Turkish, Modern Greek, Aromanian (Eastern-Romance, spoken in the Balkans).
