About Me

I am a 3rd year PhD student and researcher in the Linguistics department at University of California, San Diego, working with Dr. Marc Garellek and Dr. Will Styler, and with Dr. Tim Gentner in the Psychology department. I am also a Research Affiliate in the Neuroscience of Language Lab at New York University Abu Dhabi, directed by Dr. Liina Pylkkänen and Dr. Alec Marantz.

Prior to arriving at UCSD, I completed my B.A. in Language and Mind at New York University, working primarily with Dr. Lisa Davidson, and my M.A. in French Studies at the New York University Institute of French Studies, with a focus on decolonization, marginalization, and gender and sexuality in the contemporary Francophone world.

Outside of the lab, you can find me playing marimba, baking cookies, fighting monsters, enjoying a day at the beach, or wishing I was in Paris.
