I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student studying psycholinguistics under Dr. Sheila Blumstein at Brown University. My research focuses on conceptual processing in the right and left hemispheres of the brain. I have also conducted graduate research on the influence of phonological information on lexical access, using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques. My dissertation research is being primarily funded by the American Association of University Women, from whom I am the grateful recipient of a 2014-2015 Dissertation Fellowship.
Originally from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Basis of Behavior, where I completed research on the resolution of linguistic ambiguity in frontotemporal dementia patients under Dr. Murray Grossman.
