I am a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA, where I am employed as Elahé Omidyar Mir-Djalali Postdoctoral Fellow in Iranian Linguistics.
I received my Ph.D. in Linguistics from Stony Brook University. In my dissertation Ellipsis and Information Structure: Evidence from Persian, which was advised by John Bailyn, I studied various elliptical structures in Persian and provided a unified syntactic analysis on the basis of the interaction between information structure and ellipsis licensing feature bundles.
I received my PhD in Linguistics from Stony Brook University in 2018. I received my Masters in Linguistics from California State University, Fresno in 2009 and my Masters in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from Tehran University in 2006.
