I'm a doctoral researcher in linguistics at Northwestern University with background in both linguistics and computer science. My work combines syntactic theory with psycholinguistics to study the mechanisms of human sentence processing. In other words, what knowledge do people have about words and how they can combine into sentences (i.e., syntax)? Additionally, how does the mind put this knowledge to use in real time in order to comprehend sentences (i.e., processing)?

Most of my studies now focus on experiments and modelling to see if/how people use the knowledge they have about their language to predict what comes next in a sentence (i.e., prediction). The work extends across various languages, including English, Japanese, Russian, etc.

Besides my research, I do various other things like tutoring and programming. In my free time, I like video games, being in nature, learning mathematics/other languages, and playing bass.
