I am a graduate student in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2013 and my M.S. in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. My research interests include inferences during reading, methods for improving English language literacy, and second language acquisition. I am particularly interested in individual differences in reading comprehension and how second language learners learn the orthographic and phonological mapping for words in their second language.
My other interests outside of Psychology are trying new bread recipes and learning other languages. In my free time I like to quilt and watch soccer and martial arts competitions.
