As of Fall 2022, I am a fifth-year PhD student.
I am generally interested in sentence processing. My current work focuses on the interplay between word recognition and syntactic integration processes, primarily using eye-tracking techniques. This includes both English and Chinese reading. I am also earning a graduate-level certificate in Statistical and Computational Data Science.
My first year was supported by College of Natural Sciences (CNS) Graduate Fellowship. I have worked with Dr. Adrian Staub as a research assistant and currently as a teaching assistant in Psych 240 Undergraduate Statistics.
I was a teaching assistant for Dr. Andrew Cohen in Psych 640/641 Graduate Statistics.
I was awarded the 7th Keith Rayner Memorial Graduate Student Award from PBS for my upcoming experiments on syntactic and frequency effects on written Chinese compound processing.
Currently I work as a research assistant with Dr. Brian Dillon and Dr. Tal Linzen on constructing a large-scale eye-tracking database on syntactic ambiguity processing and testing quantitative predictions for psycholinguistic theories.
I am a ad-hoc reviewer for the following journals mainly on the topics of (1) character-word segmentation/recognition/prediction in Chinese sentence reading and (2) misreading and rational inference over noisy-channel
