I am a Cognitive Science graduate student at University of California, San Diego, where I work with Dr. Benjamin Bergen.

Research overview

Broadly, I'm interested in:

  • how human comprehenders construct meaning from under-specified linguistic input;
  • what human production and comprehension systems can tell us about language evolution;
  • how to leverage insights from psycholinguistics to improve natural language understanding.

For more details on my research, see my research page.

More information

I like to write music, make food, read books, and do things outdoors (climb, tennis, soccer).
