I am a fourth year PhD student at McMaster University, in the Cognitive Science of Language program, with interests in corpus linguistics, quantitative linguistics, psychology, and psycholinguistics.  I use corpora – including representative academic copora, social media, and other sources, to examine how the sensorimotor and affective connotations of words affect language processing, and reflect how we mentally represent people, events, and places.

I am a member of the Reading Lab and a graduate resident of the Lewis and Ruth Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship.
