Hi! I’m a fourth year PhD student (graduating 2026) in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science at the University of Maryland. I’m housed in the Department of Linguistics and am advised by Dr. Naomi Feldman and Dr. Bill Idsardi.

My research focuses on undertanding speech perception and learning using computational and behavioral methods. The questions that interest me most are those surrounding second language acquisition. How do we learn a second language as an adult? How is this process different than how we learn our first language(s)? I’m joined at UMD by the other fantastic members of my linguistics cohort, Katherine Howitt, Jingyi Chen, London Dixon , Fëdor Golosov, Zulfiyya Aghakishiyeva.
