I am a PhD Candidate in Linguistics at the CUNY Graduate Center working on the syntax of copular sentences like He ate too much pie is what he ate, where the copula is shows different behavior that it does in typical sentences like Her car is blue. In my dissertation, I develop a unified account of these oddly-behaving copulas that will shed some light on the structure of specificational sentences in general. My proposal also has implications for the theory of what makes a proposition finite.

I work as an adjunct lecturer in the New York City area, and have taught courses in linguistics, T.E.S.O.L., Spanish, English composition, and interdisciplinary humanities.
