I am a third-year PhD student, studying Linguistics and Cognitive Science. I am interested in applying information theory and machine learning to understanding the language production process. A new avenue of my research looks at how parsing changes as a result of adverse conditions.
My current projects range from studying surprisal and language modeling to predicting autism from language samples. You can read more about these on my Research page.
