who i am
I am a phd student in linguistics at McGill University.
I do research in formal semantics, syntax, and computational linguistics. I also have interests in logic, philosophy, mathematics, and computer science. In my undergrad, I majored in computer science and linguistics.
I am a non-binary individual who uses the pronoun they.
Here is a picture of me next to my sister.
what i'm doing
- current. Working on my second evaluation paper on syntactic parsing and grammar induction supervised by Tim O'Donnell.
- proceedings, dec 2017. My SALT paper was published in the proceedings. link
- tech reports, oct 2017. I coauthored two tech reports summarising collaborative work on parsing and grammar induction:
- "A generalized parsing framework for Abstract Grammars" with Daniel Harasim, Eva Portelance, and Tim O'Donnell.
- "Mildly context sensitive grammar induction and variational bayesian inference" with Eva Portelance, Leon Bergen, and Tim O'Donnell.
- symposium, sept 2017. Collaborating with Eva Portelance, Tim O'Donnel, and Leon Bergen, I presented our poster at the Montreal AI Symposium titled "Unsupervised induction of natural-language dependency structures".
- conference, may 2017. Presented "Contrastive negation and the theory of alternatives" at SALT at UMD.
- workshop, april 2017. Presented work on contrastive negation at the TOM semantics workshop at U of Toronto.

- proceedings, august 2016. The paper I presented at MOTH "Three kinds of locative preposing" was published in the Toronto WPL.
- workshop, april 2016. Presented a talk at the Montréal-Ottawa-Toronto-Hamilton syntax workshop (MOTH). (superseded by the paper).
- project, winter 2016. Worked on a collaborative project in Morgan Sonderegger's Phonology 4 class on the phonetics and phonology of laryngeal contrast. I did annotation and data analysis of a large corpora of Turkish speech, focusing on phonetic measurements for stop consonants. This research was presented in January 2017 at the LSA.
