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.

ALPS Lab members Michael Hahn and Ciyang Qing both gave talks at the first California Meeting on Psycholinguistics at UCLA on Dec 2-3.

Heather Burnett and I are organizing a workshop on sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic and formal perspectives on meaning -- abstract submission deadline is Jan 15th!
