about me


I am a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. 

I use methods from psycholinguistics and corpus linguistics to examine topics related to language and cognition, such as: working memory, categorization, and cross-linguistic speech perception. 

Some of my broader research goals are: applying psycholinguistic and corpus linguistic approaches to the study of natural language use, including language in social interaction; increasing the linguistic representativeness and sensitivity of psycholinguistic research both by using corpus linguistic methods in predicting and supporting psycholinguistic findings, and by investigating psycholinguistic phenomena in under-studied languages.
