About Me

Welcome! I am a PhD student in the Linguistics Department at New York University. As a Korean and (African-American) English bilingual, I am interested in bilingual/multilingual competence through the lifespan. My research seeks to characterize the bilingual’s ability to manage multiple grammars neurobiologically under Liina Pylkkanen‘s advisement. My research also overlaps with more general interests in syntax and its interfaces as well as acquisition/development.

I am currently associated with the following labs at NYU: NeLLab, Child Language Lab, and SocioLab.

I was one of the organizers for NWAV47.
I was also one of the organizers for the first ever (and maybe only?) LIPI.

I also moonlight as a photographer! See my general body of work here or of linguists here.
