Graduate Student

University of Pittsburgh

I’m a PhD candidate in Cognitive Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. My research interests are first and second language learning, bilingualism, lexical and semantic processing, semantic representations, and the neural bases of language learning and processing. I use a variety of behavioral, electrophysiological (EEG/ERP), and computational methods to investigate these topics.

My dissertation work focuses on the development of a novel training method for learning first and second language vocabulary. I anticipate defending my dissertation in the fall of 2019.
