I am a post-doctoral researcher at McGill University. I received my Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology and Language Science at The Pennsylvania State University in 2015. After, I moved to Montreal as an NIH-funded post-doctoral fellow at McGill University.
I study the dynamic relationships between language, cognition, and brain organization. I am particularly interested in quantifying how these relationships depend on individual differences in everyday language experience, including bilingualism and multilingualism.
I first realized my interest in languages in my German classes in high school. During my undergraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I became interested in how people understand and produce language, and I decided to pursue Linguistics and Psychology as my major. After receiving my B.A. in 2007, I joined the Center for Language Science as a Research Technologist. Working for the Center, I helped conduct psycholinguistic studies on bilingual language processing.
