I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Michigan in 2010 with a specialization in psycholinguistics. Broadly speaking, I am interested in issues related to first and second language processing of verb argument structure and long-distance dependencies. My research has been guided by the overarching objective to discern how, when, and to what extent different levels of detailed linguistic representations (e.g., lexical-semantic and syntactic), non-linguistic representations (e.g., conceptual structure) as well as sentence-level information (e.g., pragmatic and discourse coherence) are accessed and utilized during online language processing, and how the effect of these factors is influenced by non-linguistic, cognitive constraints, such as working memory span.
