Hi, I’m Cara!

I’m a first year linguistics PhD student at New York University. My research uses methods from formal semantics and computational modeling to understand the structures necessary for representing and processing language. Before coming to NYU, I completed my BA in Linguistics and BS in Computer Science at the National University of Singapore, advised by Michael Yoshitaka Erlewine and Min-Yen Kan.

Outside of linguistics, I enjoy baking, bouldering, and ceramics.
