I am an Assistant Professor of Linguistics in the English Department at the College of William & Mary. My research is on human cognition, with a focus on language. I am amazed at our ability to acquire, use, and understand language so easily. I want to figure out how language is stored and processed mentally to better understand what makes language come to us so easily, and why it occasionally fails us.
