I am a fifth year Doctoral Student in Linguistics at the University of Connecticut.
My dissertation work focuses on how children integrate conceptual, grammatical, and processing information in an effort to acquire complex syntactic structures such as the verbal passive.
Sometimes I moonlight as a neurolinguist. My research in this area focuses on leveraging experimental methods to explore syntactic theory. Specifically, I aim to understand the dynamics of P600 satiation in order to discover the spectrum of syntactic constraints that can/cannot satiate each others’ P600.
I also have some dabblings in acquisition of semantics and theoretical semantics work.
