I am a Ph.D student in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University. I work with Michael Frank in the Language and Cognition Lab studying the intersection of language acquisition, self-directed learning, and decision making.

Before grad school, I worked with Anne Fernald investigating the relationship between children's early language skills and their language learning environments. I also helped develop a new method for measuring children's language processing skills in American Sign Language. I did my undergrad at Wesleyan University where I worked with Hilary Barth on projects related to children's decisions about who they would like to learn from.
