I'm a fifth-year graduate student in Linguistics at the University of California, San Diego. I'm in the UCSD Computational Psycholinguistics Lab, working with Roger Levy.
My primary research interests are language acquisition (especially computational models of the acquisition process) and speaker choice (as a means of investigating the factors affecting language production). Basically, I'm interested in what knowledge one has to have to "know" a language, and how one goes about gaining that knowledge. I also work on problems of experimental syntax and artificial intelligence. If you're interested in the specifics of my research, you can check out my research page.
I also run Motivated Grammar, a grammar blog that corrects misinformed grammatical pedantry and looks into why we say what we say.
As a potentially helpful visual aid for identifying me, here is a picture of me jumping. In case you are trying to identify me when I am not jumping, here is a less active picture.
