My name is Yiyang Guo, pronounced as [i: iɑŋ, kuo]. Welcome to my homepage!

I am a first-year PhD student at Cambridge Linguistics under the supervision of Prof. Ian Roberts and Dr. Theresa Biberauer. My research centres on syntax, semantics, morphology, and their interfaces. I am currently working on how counting in the domain of events is encoded in Mandarin. I am also interested in diminutives from a cross-linguistic perspective.

I am a huge fan of music during 'me time'. See more of me playing the Double Bass in the gallery.
