Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis.
My area of research is
psycholinguistics. I take advantage of basic insights from formal linguistics,
especially theories in sentence phonology and syntax, to develop
models of processing. My empirical work relies both on behavioral and
neural measures, including eyetracking (for measurement of fixations,
saccades, and pupil
diameter) and the recording of event-related potentials (ERPs). The
fundamental aim of my research is to uncover the mechanisms that
enable humans to understand and generate language in real time and in
cooperation with other cognitive systems.
