I received my Ph.D. in 2021 from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago. My dissertation, titled Learning Syntax via Decomposition, can be found here. In 2015, I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University with a Specialist degree (≈B.A.+M.A.) in linguistics.
My primary area of interest is mathematical and computational linguistics. Some of my current projects include automated optimization of minimalist grammars and formalizing Distributed Morphology. Believing that insights from theoretical linguistics can and should inform practical applications, I enjoy implementing my research in runnable code.
During my undergraduate career, I participated in a number of linguistic expeditions, acquiring fieldwork experience in Uralic and Altaic languages. Since then, I have been interested in developing tools that facilitate fieldwork and aid in the processing of field data – for instance, a system for automated extraction of agglutinative morphology from small samples of glossed text.
