I'm currently a PhD student in linguistics at UC San Diego, and a member of the Field Research Lab and S-Babble. Previously, I received my BA Honours (Highest Distinction) in English Language at the National University of Singapore, where I was also a member of the NUS SynSem Lab.

I specialise in syntax but I'm also interested in topics at the interfaces, variation and change, and fieldwork. Much of my current work focuses on Khalkha Mongolian and Singlish.
