About me

I’m a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics and Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego. I am a member of the Mayberry Laboratory for Multimodal Language Development.

My research interests lie in language development, the neural foundations of language, and neural plasticity. Currently I’m mostly working with adolescent first language learners of American Sign Language who only had very limited access to language in their early years. I work on behavioral as well as neural data, with a focus on syntactic development.
