Before moving to Cambridge, I completed my PhD in Linguistics at UCLA in sunny Los Angeles, where I spent my time enjoying the city’s museums and coffee shops.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, majoring in Linguistics & Languages (combining a suite of theory courses with advanced reading in Attic and Homeric Greek and Tiberian Hebrew), with minors in Greek and Religion.
While at Swarthmore also I sang in the chorus and chamber choir, and was involved in queer community-building and activism. Before that, I grew up in rural Massachusetts.
These days I like to explore Cambridge, drink lots of coffee, and sing (albeit primarily in the shower).
