I am a second year PhD student of linguistics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor advised by Dr. Savithry Namboodiripad and working with the Contact, Cognition and Change Lab. I am interested in contact effects in minoritised languages, specifically creoles and signed languages. My qualifying paper is a typological study of mouthings across signed languages. See a preview of this study below!
