I received my Ph.D., M.S., and my B.Phil degrees from the University of Pittsburgh.

My work as a graduate student focused on language processing within- and across-languages. My dissertation focused on meaning ambiguity within and across languages and how ambiguity and meaning similarity affects the learning process. For example, was it easier to learn that the new meaning of ‘Tweet’ related to a short message sent on Twitter or that ‘the cloud’ now also refers to a communications network?

I am currently working on education interventions with my research methods lab students. The main goal is to help students acquire better scientific writing skills through peer review and critical thinking.
