I'm a postdoctoral researcher in Linguistics and English Language (part of the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences) at the University of Edinburgh. I work with Chris Cummins and Antonella Sorace on a project on bilingualism, pragmatic enrichment and reasoning biases, which is supported by the Leverhulme Trust.
I received my Phd in Linguistics from the University of Maryland, where I was advised by Ellen Lau and Alexander Williams. During my time at Maryland, I conducted research in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Lab and was an active member of UMD's interdisciplinary language science community.
My research focuses on sentence processing and how the grammar interacts with other cognitive mechanisms. I have a background in theoretical syntax and semantics, which grounds my experimental work in linguistic theory.
