I am a Language Engineer at Amazon on the Alexa Machine Learning team. Prior to Amazon, I was a postdoc research associate at the University of Pittsburgh under the direction of Dr. Alan Juffs. I maintain an active research program with the English Language Institute data mining team, as well as in my own research.
I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2017. My research interests are in SLA and syntax. I also do work in L2 orthographic knowledge and writing development, L2 phonological acquisition, and acquisition of tense/aspect in Japanese.
