I'm a sixth year PhD student in linguistics at UMass Amherst.

Much of my working hours are spent on thinking and writing about the meaning of attitude reports (like Tunç knows that or knows whether Hillary won the election), and how this interacts with their structure and pronunciation.

My curiosity also takes me various other places, ranging from the meaning of noun phrases in a language like Somali, to how a speaker of Turkish modulates their voice when uttering sentences.
