My research interests are centered on the ability to produce and understand language, with a specific focus on how we recognize and combine the meanings of words. To study these topics I use neuroimaging methods, including magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I’m also interested in the development of computational models of language, and how these may align with the neural systems that support human language abilities.
