office hours for Winter 2021: Tuesdays, 11 AM - 12 PM Pacific, on Zoom
I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. Before that I was the lab manager at the Child Language Lab at NYU, by way of UMass Amherst where I received a BA in Linguistics and Psychology.
I am primarily interested in language processing, especially as it relates to the incremental building of sentence structure and composition of sentence meaning.
I am particularly interested in the structure and processing of Telugu, a Dravidian language spoken in India, and more recently, Santiago Laxopa Zapotec, a Oaxacan language spoken in Mexico. I firmly believe that the rigorous investigation of such understudied languages will enrich and refine theory in psycholinguistics.
