I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley. My research interests include sociolinguistic variation, language contact, language maintenance, and language change. I address these broad areas by studying the factors that constrain variation in contemporary spoken Yiddish. I am also interested in computational methods (e.g., the use of online corpora) and in syntactic theory and analysis, especially the mechanisms that account for optionality and variation.
I am also affiliated with the Center for Jewish Studies.
