Bio: I'm a graduate student in pursuit of my Ph.D. in Linguistics at Brown University in the Department of Cognitive Science and Linguistics under the guidance of Pauline Jacobson. I completed my undergraduate degree in Linguistics at the University of Southern California, where I was lucky enough to work with Elena Guerzoni and Barry Schein. During my undergraduate years, I spent a year in Berlin, Germany at Humboldt Universitšt and was introduced to semantic binding theory thanks to Uli Sauerland.

Scheme, functional programming, procedural programming, Emacs & Emacs keybindings, the Dvorak keyboard layout, free software, Apple computer, Java, object-oriented programming, continuations, Haskell, Net Neutrality, Paul Graham, Web2.0, /., this silly series of tubes we call the Internet,
