I’m a fourth-year PhD student in the Cognitive Science department at Johns Hopkins University, working with Dr. Paul Smolensky and Dr. Kyle Rawlins. My (broad) areas of interest are lexical semantics, syntax-semantics interface and morphology, and I use computational and psycholinguistic methodologies to explore these areas. I also sometimes think about linguistic representations in NLP and how to evaluate them better. Please refer to the Publications section for past and ongoing projects.
