Research & Teaching Interests
 
I did my graduate work with Bob Berwick and Noam Chomsky  in the MIT AI Lab, an incredibly fun place. I then took up a faculty position in linguistics and psychology at Yale. I moved to Penn in 2006 to join a uniquely interdisciplinary community for language and cognitive science research.
