I am a computational psycholinguist and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Cognitive Science at Swarthmore College.

Starting in August 2022 I will be moving to the Department of Psychology at UT Austin to join the Developmental Intelligence Lab as a postdoctoral research fellow working with Chen Yu.


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 (and am an ongoing collaborator) of the Language Learning Lab in the Department of Psychology and I was also 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.
