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

My research focuses on the question how morphologically complex words are stored and accessed, and what role semantic transparency plays in the mental representation of such linguistic objects. I investigate these questions using priming studies. I have a secondary interest in semantics, and I conduct experimental research on quantifier scope resolution and presupposition projection. I am furthermore interested in language development in language impaired populations, such as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

I am affiliated with The Embick Lab (Experimental study of morphological structure and lexical access), and the Experimental Study of Meaning Lab.
