I’m a third-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. I use computational and psycholinguistic methodologies to explore these areas—more details about on-going and past projects can be found in the Publications and Research sections.
