As a computational neurolinguist, I investigate the brain bases of language as a cognitive process. In this endeavor, I make use of natural language processing technology such as large language models and dependency and constituency parsers. Furthermore, I am driven by the desire to understand how language processing in the brain is similar and different across languages. For my dissertation, I am using computational models of working memory and disambiguation during language processing to look for similarities and differences in brain activity as speakers of different languages listen to a storybook.
