Academic bio

I am a PhD student in the Cognitive and Informational Sciences program at UC Merced. I am currently working in Dr. Rachel Ryskin’s Language, Interaction, and Cognition Lab. I completed my undergrad at Indiana University in Cognitive Science (B.S.) and East Asian Languages and Culture (Chinese, B.A.). I worked and continue to collaborate in Dr. Chen Yu’s Developmental Intelligence Lab. I am interested in using NLP methods to explore cognitive science topics like semantic representation and language acquisition.
