Research Interests

Language is an extraordinarily complex system, yet the human brain learns, comprehends, and produces it with remarkable efficiency. I direct the Language and Computation Lab, which investigates how such feats are accomplished. We use techniques from machine learning, computational linguistics, and statistics to build computational models of language behaviors and to analyze large behavioral and neuroscientific datasets, some of which we also collect, especially via eye tracking and crowdsourcing.
