I have a BA in Theater from Oberlin College, but my work in early literacy outreach with the bi- and monolingual communities (immigrant and otherwise) of New York City was the catalyst for my shift to Cognitive Science. My research interests include learning more about the cognitive and neural mechanisms of language and reading acquisition and bilingualism and its effects. I am currently working on a project exploring the possibilities for parasynthesis within the morphology of the English language.
