I’m interested in applying insights from computational modeling and mathematical formalization to issues in theoretical linguistics (especially syntax), language acquisition and processing. I also explore the application of such methods to problems in Natural Language Processing. This happens in the context of the Computational Linguistics at Yale (CLAY) lab, whose website you can consult for more details.
