My name is Zeinab Kachakeche. I’m an first year graduate student in the Language Science department at UC Irvine. I’m interested in utilizing computational, experimental, and information theoretic approaches to understand how human language works. I am also interested in studying efficiency in language communication. As an undergraduate, I’ve worked on adjective ordering in Arabic. I believe that looking at language from a cross-linguistic lens helps us understand language more.

Interests

  • language efficiency
  • adjective order
