I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University, co-advised by Tal Linzen and Paul Smolensky. Before coming to JHU, I received a B.A. in Linguistics at Yale University, advised by Robert Frank.

I use computational modeling to understand the formal properties of language, how these properties are instantiated in the mind, and which of these properties are innate vs. learned. I am also interested in using computational linguistics to advance natural language processing, and vice versa.
