Linguist, Photographer

I'm Si Kai - but you can call me Sky/Skai - and I'm a 3rd year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Connecticut. I hail from Singapore, where I attended the National University of Singapore as an undergraduate.

I am primarily interested in the syntax and semantics of natural language, as well as their interaction at the interface; my work has thus far focussed on my own native dialect of Singlish and all of its quirks and eccentricities, though I have also worked on Qaraqalpaq, a Turkic language spoken in Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan.

Outside of linguistics, I spend my time on video games, photography, and outdoor-sy activities like kayaking.
