I am a second-year Ph.D. student at MIT in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, where I am advised by Roger Levy in the Computational Psycholinguistics Laboratory. I received my B.A. from Harvard in Mathematics and Linguistics in 2018.

My research develops computational models of how humans resolve ambiguity in language understanding, with the goal of building better systems of artificial intelligence. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the NIH Computationally-Enabled Integrative Neuroscience Training Program.

I currently serve as Co-Chair of Graduate Women at MIT. In my free time, I like making music, writing comedy, and playing SET.
