About

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Linguistics Department at Tel Aviv University. I completed my PhD in Linguistics at MIT in 2018. I have a BSc in Mathematics and Linguistics and an MA in Linguistics, both from Tel Aviv University. Before joining Tel Aviv University as a faculty member, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the graduate program "Interaction of Grammatical Building Blocks" (IGRA) at Leipzig University.

 

My main research areas are phonology, morphology, language acquisition and learnability, and computational linguistics.
