Hi! I am a second year PhD student in Linguistics at The University of Pennsylvania. My primary research interest is in psycholinguistics. My advisor is David Embick, and I also work with Florian Schwarz.

My research mainly focuses on psycholinguistics, and the question of how adults understand their native language, and how children acquire language. I am especially interested in how morphologically complex words are stored and accessed, and what role semantic transparency plays in the mental representation of such linguistic objects. I am furthermore interested in language development in language impaired populations, such as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
