Welcome to my homepage!

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Language & Cognition lab, Stanford University.

I am interested in the mechanisms of early language acquisition. 

My research strategy is interdisciplinary: I use technology from Speech Recognition and Natural Language processing to investigate large scale datasets that represent linguistic input in early childhood. Additionally, I use Bayesian modeling to predict behavior/development in controlled laboratory tasks.  More recently, I started using Network science to characterize structural dynamics in the early lexicon.
