I am an assistant professor of Japanese Linguistics in the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures and a cooperating faculty in the Department of Linguistics at University of Hawai'i at Manoa. My research instrests include syntax, lexical semantics, syntax-lexical semantic interface phenomena and their acquisition, Japanese linguistics and experimental approaches to syntactic research.
I earned my degree from the Department of Linguistics at University of California, San Diego, where I studied under Ivano Caponigro, Grant Goodall, John Moore, and Masha Polinsky (Harvard). I was also fortunate enough to have Yuki Kuroda as my mentor.
