Shrayana Haldar

All of us at French and Francophone would like to offer heartfelt congratulations to one of our most distinguished students, Shrayana Haldar, a senior Linguistics and French major, who has been accepted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for doctoral studies in linguistics. MIT ranks #1 in the QS 2020 world rankings. As a doctoral student at MIT, Shrayana plans to pursue her interests in various subjects in syntax and syntax-semantics. While a student at UMass, she has worked on a particular kind of ellipsis in her first language Bengali, an interest she plans to develop further in the course of her doctoral studies. Shrayana's always enthusiastic and intellectually stimulating presence in our classes for the past four years has been a pleasure for her professors as well as her peers. We will miss her, and we wish her the best of luck in all her future studies.
