About me:

I'm a Ph.D. student at the University at Buffalo, where I work in the Buffalo Babylab under the supervision of Dr. Marieke van Heugten.

Broadly, I study language processing at the level of sentence structures and speech sounds, in both children and adults. More specifically, my research interests include syntactic and phonological adaptation, the nature of phonological representations, computational models of phonological learning, and how phonological cues (such as accent) shape both linguistic exectations and social judgments.

In my work, I often employ eyetracking technology to help me make inferences about people's cognitive processes.
