I completed my PhD in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics here at the University of Cambridge in 2019 and now hold a Title A (Junior Research) Fellowship at Trinity College. I am Affiliated Lecturer at the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics and co-convene the Cambridge Endangered Languages and Cultures Group (CELC). 

Before coming to Cambridge, I studied for a BA in Korean & Linguistics with Yoruba at SOAS, University of London with a year at Korea University, Republic of Korea. During that time, I worked part-time as a Research Assistant in Korean Linguistics at SOAS and at the University of Oxford.
