I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Cognitive Development Center & Department of Cognitive Science at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. I have an EU-funded Widening Grant to study the precursors of semantic development in infancy with Ágnes Kovács and Ernő Téglás, and we are also part of a larger research network investigating the origins of abstract combinatorial thought in humans.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Département d'Etudes Cognitives at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, affiliated with the Institut Jean Nicod, the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique and the LINGUAE research group. There, I worked with Salvador Mascarenhas and Emmanuel Chemla on a project titled "Interpretation, Reasoning & Decisions". We looked at developmental differences in reasoning and hypothesis testing, with a particular focus on the role of pragmatic processes in reasoning.
I got my PhD in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Maryland, under the supervision of Valentine Hacquard & Jeffrey Lidz. I also worked with Alexander Williams and Meredith Rowe during my time at Maryland. I was an active participant in the Maryland language science community and a proud member of our interdisciplinary Philosophy & Linguistics group (PHLING).
