I recently defended my Ph.D. dissertation in linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. My dissertation advisor was David Embick and I also worked with Florian Schwarz and Julie Anne Legate. I work on the realization of morphemes at the interfaces of syntax with interpretation and sound in the Distributed Morphology framework. I also work on language technology; in particular, I am one of the authors of the Icelandic treebank, IcePaHC.
