I am a cognitive psychologist interested in language. I teach Cognitive Psychology, Advanced Methods in Cognitive Psychology, Introductory Psychology, Statistics, and a seminar on Language and Thought. My lab investigates some of the ways that language influences cognition. One of our primary interests in in how people process metaphors and use metaphors to think.
