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 contend with ambiguous or under-specified linguistic input;
  • why human languages contain so much ambiguity;
  • how to leverage insights from psycholinguistics to improve natural language understanding.

For more details on my research, see my research page and my cv. For information about courses I've taught, see my my teaching page.

More information

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