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.

I am interested in interdisciplinary approaches to history, combining findings from historical linguistics, archaeology, anthropology, geography, genetics, and historical documents in attempts to develop more accurate hypotheses and conclusions. Other areas of interest include: historical linguistics, language typology, language endangerment and revitalization, morphology, animacy hierarchies, inverse voice, numeral systems, ethnomusicology language documentation, ancient writing systems, Afroasiatic languages, and Pidgins and Creoles.
