I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Psychology of Language Department at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, working with Antje Meyer. My research aims to get a better understanding of how the human mind comprehends language. I am particularly interested in how listeners and readers arrive at an interpretation of a word, sentence, or another chunk of linguistic material. I’m currently working on topics related to ambiguity resolution, misinterpretations, lexical access, and morphological processing.

I received my PhD from the Linguistics Department at the University of Pennsylvania, where I worked with David Embick and Meredith Tamminga. My dissertation can be found here.
