I am a PhD student in the Linguistics Department, at the Ohio State University. I am mainly interested in connecting cognitive plausible models of human sentence processing with modern machine learning techniques. I have worked on projects that areĀ on using brain imaging to explore memory usage in sentence processing, on using deep learning models to do question interpretation and on improving cognitively plausible left-corner parsing with better training techniques inspired by reinforcement learning.

With better understanding of linguistic information in large corpora, I aim to improve cognitive models such that they better reflect human language processing.
