I am a University of Edinburgh undergraduate studying Linguistics. I was born and raised in the US, mostly in Connecticut.

My academic interests are: evolutionary linguistics, the simulation of language, sociohistorical linguistics, phonology (in particular pitch perception), poetic languages (especially concerning epics), lexicography, and language preservation and documentation. I am particularly interested in, or have studied: Greek, Latin, Japanese, Korean, Old English, German, Tocharian, and some constructed languages, as Na'vi.

Non-linguistic interests include anthropology, biology, history, classics, literature, creative writing, economics and political science. Other interests, as for most people, include things like sleeping in the grass in the sun on an island somewhere in the bay, or the concept but not the actuality of rain.
