I am a third-year PhD student at UCLA in the department of linguistics. My interests are in sentence processing, language acquisition, and semantics/pragmatics. I have secondary interests in intonation and computational linguistics. Currently, I am investigating the selection of focus alternatives during real-time comprehension and the role of discourse structure in syntactic bootstrapping. I am advised by Jesse Harris and Laurel Perkins on these projects respectively. Other advisors in the department include Dylan Bumford, Tim Hunter, and Sun-Ah Jun.

Before coming to Los Angeles, I was a Lab Manager for the XLing Laboratories at UMass Amherst where I earned my undergraduate degree. I was advised by Brian Dillon there. I like cyclcing and making music in my free time. Here's what I listened to this week.
