I am a computational psycholinguist and a postdoctoral research fellow at The University of Texas at Austin. My research looks at questions intersecting linguistics, computation, and cognition with a particular focus on language acquisition and language processing. I am a member of the Developmental Intelligence Lab (PI: Chen Yu) in the Department of Psychology.


From 2020 through 2022 I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Cognitive Science at Swarthmore College.

I received my Ph.D from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania where I was jointly advised by the wonderful team of Charles Yang, John Trueswell, and Mitch Marcus. I was a member of the Language Learning Lab in the Department of Psychology as well as a member of the NLP group in the Department of Computer and Information Science.

My dissertation, The Immediacy of Linguistic Computation, investigates the way that language unfolds over time, and the cognitive restrictions this places on language processing and language acquisition.
