I’m a 3rd year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Chicago, also affiliated with Ming Xiang’s Language Processing Lab. Previously, I completed a BA in Linguistics at the University of Cambridge.

My primary research interests are in psycholinguistics and experimental semantics-pragmatics. I have worked on the role of Questions Under Discussion in implicature processing, the effect of pragmatic contrast on speech perception, as well as quantifier scope ambiguities.

I have a secondary interest in syntax, from both processing and theoretical perspectives. Ongoing projects include relative clause complexity and identity in clausal ellipsis – with special focus on Hungarian.
