I graduated from the University of Washington in 2010 with a B.S. in psychology and minors in Italian language and music. I am currently in the Developmental Psychology Ph.D. program at UC Davis, with a focus on early language development. My research interests include language learning mechanisms, early word acquisition, bilingualism, communication disorders and cognitive development. Working with the Language Learning Lab will be a great way to pursue these interests and to learn about the fascinating field of language development.
