I am a graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at Harvard University.

My primary research interests are in syntax-lexical semantics interface, sentence processing, and language acquisition. I investigate these issues with various methods including eye-tracking, corpus study, and judgment tests. I am also interested in finding suitable paradigms for data collection and comparing statistical models for data analysis.

My current research topics include:

  • processing of unaccusative sentences and relative clauses
  • argument structure of intransitive verbs
  • prosody of intransitive sentences
  • acquisition of intransitive verbs (CHILDES corpus study)

I have a secondary interest in the syntax-prosody interface, including:

  • modeling Mandarin tone sandhi variation
  • Jinan Tone sandhi (fieldwork)
