I am a postdoctoral associate in Bharath Chandrasekaran's SoundBrain lab, University of Pittsburgh. Broadly, I investigate how people perceive and acquire linguistically-relevant speech units across multiple languages, including Spanish. My research program triangulates on these questions using linguistics (mostly phonetics and phonology), neuroimaging, and machine learning. Much of my work is informed by psycholinguistics and theoretical linguistics. My goal is to develop computational and neurobiologically-informed models to test theoretical predictions and inform clinical treatments. I also use non-invasive brain stimulation to explore new means to optimize L2 learning and neural rehabilitation.
