Education: B.S. University of California, Los Angeles; M.A., Ph.D. University of California, Riverside
My primary areas of research involve language processing (lexical and sentential) and computational modeling of meaning representation. Presently, I am pursuing research in high-dimensional space modeling of meaning representation, determining the effects discourse constraints on sentence comprehension and examining factors that contribute to individual differences in verbal ability. I have an active research program with a team of undergraduate students. We (my undergraduates and I) recently presented new findings at WPA in Irvine. If you are interested in being a member of the team please contact me.
I like to cook (and eat), play soccer, hike, garden and read science fiction (not necessarilly in that order).
