[no͡ʊə hɹ̩məlɨn]

I'm a fourth year graduate student in the linguistics department at UC Berkeley. My primary interests are in the relation between language and cognition, writing systems/written language, and how pressures of communicative efficiency shape language; additional interests include sound symbolism, phonology, and the psycholinguistics of reading and literacy. I employ computational and statistical/information theoretic methods for much of my work.

I'm advised by Terry Regier, and am a member of UC Berkeley's Language & Cognition lab.
