Birch at loch an eileen.

I'm a third-year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz., advised by Matt Wagers. My research interests mainly lie in psycholinguistics, semantics, and prosody.

I am interested in the timecourse of and interaction between syntactic and semantic processing, and how these processes can be facilitated or hindered during real-time sentence comprehension. Specifically, I have looked at how syntactic and semantic processing can be guided by the generation of expectations about upcoming material and influenced by semantic context, prosody, and domain-general cognitive factors (e.g., memory and attention).
