I am a PhD student in Shravan Vasishth's Psycholinguistics lab. I am interested in the cognitive mechanisms underlying the processing of syntactic dependencies. My current project investigates the role of working-memory constraints in the parsing of anaphoric elements across different languages (e.g., Chinese, German and English).
