I’m a second-year PhD student in the Linguistics Department at the University of Maryland, College Park. My advisors are Masha Polinsky and Omer Preminger.

Very broadly, I’m interested in exploring what the limitations of natural language can tell us about its general properties. My research is in morphology and syntax, with an empirical focus on Slavic languages. My previous work explored the properties of bare-NP adverbials, specifically the locus of their case and their relation to overt PPs.

More recently, I’ve been thinking about participles in Serbo-Croatian and cross-linguistically. In the winter of 2020, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks at UMD’s Field Station in Patzún, Guatemala, learning Kaqchikel (Quichean, Mayan). I hope to return there as soon as possible to do fieldwork that will inform my ongoing research.

Before coming to Maryland, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia. I am still involved with NSLing, a research group based at UNS.
