PhD in Linguistics, UMD
My research focuses on syntax and psycholinguistics. I am primarily interested in understanding the interaction between online structure building operations and memory access procedures. My research is informed by investigating dependency formation in online sentence comprehension, interpolating insights from theoretical, experimental, and computational methodologies. More specifically, my research investigates how memory functions and fails resulting in the formation of licit and illicit linguistic dependencies (e.g. reflexive licensing, agreement attraction, illusory negative polarity item licensing, anaphoric PRO resolution).
