In addition to being a doctoral student at UC Berkeley, I received my MA in Linguistics (2014) and BA in German (2010) from Wayne State University. My MA essay successfully discussed and defended in a theoretical framework how and why it is necessary to embed a gender phrase beneath a determiner phrase in the German language. My current research interests are theoretical syntax, contact linguistics, and runology.
