I am a fourth-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 earned my B.A. from Harvard University in Mathematics and Linguistics in 2018.

I am interested in the computational and cognitive principles that underlie the human capacity for language. My research draws from a broad set of theoretical, statistical, and experimental methods, with the dual goals of understanding the human mind and building better systems of artificial intelligence. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement grant, and was previously supported by the Computationally-Enabled Integrative Neuroscience Training Program.

In my free time, I like making music, writing comedy, and playing SET.
