About me

Welcome! I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago and my research focuses on the syntax and morphology of Cypriot Greek and Standard Modern Greek. My dissertation research is about the morphological and syntactic analysis of Cypriot Greek, my native language. Beyond my current focus on theoretical linguistics, I have worked on experimental projects investigating adult speech and children’s speech development. I have been conducting fieldwork since 2016 on the endangered minority language of Cypriot Maronite Arabic, where I study code-mixing and its implications for morphosyntactic theory.
