Short bio
Before joining Linguistics, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Noah Goodman's Computation and Cognition Lab in the Psychology Department at Stanford.

I obtained my joint Ph.D. in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Linguistics in 2013 from the University of Rochester, under the supervision of Mike Tanenhaus and Christine Gunlogson. Before that, I obtained a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from the University of Osnabrück.

Greg Scontras and I have started putting together an FAQ of RSA as part of the developing web book on probabilistic language understanding within the RSA framework, which I'll be teaching from at the Methods Workshop in Cologne Sep 20-22. Drop us a line if you have further questions you'd like to see addressed.
