I am a third-year PhD student at UCLA in the department of linguistics. My interests are broadly in psycholinguistics, semantics/pragmatics, and intonation. More narrowly, I am interested in sentence processing and information structure. I study how the mental representations underlying meaning/discourse develop in real-time with an emphasis on spoken input. Currently, I am investigating how focus alternatives are selected and how tune influences syntactic memory. I am advised by Jesse Harris and Sun-Ah Jun primarily.
