I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate and a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Department of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex, Colchester (United Kingdom). I studied MA in English at Tezpur University (Assam) before joining Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi) for my MA and MPhil in Linguistics.
My current research entitled Childrens Acquisition of Assamese Case Markers is funded by the Economic and Social Council Research, United Kingdom. This study aims to look at how Assamese speaking children in Tinsukia and Dibrugarh district acquire the grammatical structures in the language. Apart from language acquisition, my research interests also include child-directed speech, language games, and language documentation.
