About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Linguistics Department at the University of California, San Diego. I study human sentence processing using both experimental and computational methods. My dissertation research focuses on word preferences in binomial expressions of the form X and Y (e.g. bread and butter). Other interests include experimental syntax and music cognition. My advisor is Roger Levy.

In my spare time, I love to swing dance.
