I am a PhD student in the Department Of Linguistics at the University Of Maryland in College Park and a member of the Computational Linguistics and Information Processing Lab (CLIP) in the Institute for Advanced Computing Studies (UMIACS). I am also a Language Science Fellow in the Maryland Language Science Center.
Before moving to Maryland, I received my Bachelor's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018 with a double major in Linguistics and Brain and Cognitive Science.
My research interests lie at the intersection of Computational Cognitive Modeling, Phonology and Neuroscience, where I aim to use computational models to study how the brain processes speech.

Current (Fall 2021): LING449G: Perceptual Models Of Speech. Instructor: Craig Thorburn
When hearing speech, humans rapidly and robustly map from a continuous acoustic signal to an abstract representation of the sounds of their language. This seminar will explore models of this acoustic-phonetic perceptual mapping by drawing from a variety of methodologies and perspectives. We will discuss the merits and issues of linguistic, computational, and neuroscientific approaches and draw connections between these disciplines. A background in neuroscience or computational modeling is not required.
