I am interested in how humans use discourse information in the language acquisition and language production. I use computational models to formalize these questions. I have investigated how language learners learn grammatical categories of pronouns using discourse information and how speakers represent/use discourse information when they choose referring expression. I have also conducted various behavioral experiments to investigate children's linguistic knowledge.
