Welcome to my website!


I recently completed my PhD in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm also affiliated with the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology. My research interests are in psycholinguistics and second language acquisition. Currently, my research focuses on understanding anticipatory language processing in first and second language populations, and on how grammatical gender is acquired and represented in a second language.


My PhD was supervised by Dr. Darren Tanner. My experimental work is conducted in the UIUC Electrophysiology and Language Processing Lab and in the Second Language Acquisition and Bilingualism Lab.
