I'm a graduate student at the University of Rochester in the Computation and Language Lab advised by Steven Piantadosi. Broadly, I am interested in semantics and concepts. My current research attempts to answer four questions:
1) How do we represent meaning?
2) How do children learn the meanings of words?
3) How do people understand sentences during online processing? and
4) How does context interact with meaning?
I address these questions with computational modeling, behavioral experiments with adults and children and, every now and then, neuro-imaging methods (specifically fMRI).
