I completed my master’s degree in linguistics at The Ohio State University, where my studies focused on first language acquisition in spoken languages. Through my research both in the Developmental Language and Cognition Lab and in the Spanish Psycholinguistics Lab, I investigated the development of children’s ability to interpret the meanings of various prosodic structures.

I am excited to continue investigating the semantics and pragmatics of prosody, this time through examining signers’ perception of prosodic structures in signed language utterances. In addition, I am working on a project to investigate the evolution of word order in incipient signed languages.Email:
