I’m a second-year PhD student in the department of linguistics at MIT. I’m interested in syntax and semantics, and my work has drawn primarily from fieldwork on colloquial Burmese. Before coming to the US, I received my BA and MA in English Language and Linguistics at the National University of Singapore. I was also a research asssistant at the NUS Syntax/Semantics Lab led by PI Michael Yoshitaka Erlewine.
