I am a recent graduate from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I started this blog during my graduate studies as a way to share my academic interests. In September 2017, I successfully completed the Master’s of Science (Thesis-Based) program offered by the Department of Linguistics, under the supervision of Dr. Herbert Colston and Dr. Juhani Järvikivi. During that time I was a member of the Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics and served as the Vice-President for the Linguistics Graduate Students’ Association.
My research interests include psycholinguistics, dialogue, discourse processing (production & comprehension), simulation models, collaboration, common ground, reference, and ambiguity. To view my academic CV or for more information on my current research, please see my Research page.
My other interests in academia include moving beyond the “ivory tower” to engage the community in research and make information easily accessible to the public; and to encourage professional development and well-rounded extracurricular programming in student groups.
