I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. I am working with Dr. Andrea Berez-Kroeker and Dr. Bradley McDonnell on the National Science Foundation–funded project, EAGER: Data Science Literacy for Linguistics. As part of the project, we are editing The Open Handbook of Linguistic Data Management, which will appear as the first volume in the MIT Press Open Handbooks in Linguistics series.

My primary research areas are historical linguistics, language typology, language endangerment and revitalization, and morphology. Other interests include: animacy hierarchies, inverse voice, numeral systems, ethnomusicology language documentation, and writing systems, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to historical linguistics (collaboration with archaeology, geography, etc.).
