I am in the fifth year the PhD program in Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I study Agreement and Case from a syntactic and psycholinguistic perspective, with an empirical focus on South Asian languages.
I have also worked on Person and Number hierarchies in Agreement in other languages:
- Person and Number Agreement in Ojibwe, Cree and Dumi (with Ekaterina Vostrikova and Leland Kusmer)
In addition, I have extensively studied the syntax and syntax-semantics interface for Hindi-Urdu as part of the following projects:
- Agents and Instruments in Hindi-Urdu Causatives.
- Focus marking in Hindi-Urdu
- Hindi-English Code-switching
- Sluicing in Hindi-Urdu (with Jyoti Iyer)
- Anaphors in Hindi-Urdu (with Ethan Poole)
- Comparatives in Hindi-Urdu (with Jyoti Iyer and Gurmeet Kaur)
