I graduated from the UW in 2017 with a degree in linguistics, after working with IBIC for more than two years as an undergraduate research assistant. My work here focuses on development of preprocessing and analysis pipelines. I work on Udall Project 2 which studies genetic factors in Parkinson’s disease as well as the effects of Parkinson’s medication on cognition as well as Tara’s new project which uses simultaneous fMRI/EEG to asses intrinsic networks in Parkinson’s disease. Beyond my work at IBIC, I'm interested in the cognitive aspects of linguistics, especially first- and second-language acquisition. My honors thesis (supervised by Lee Osterhout of the Department of Psychology) studied the effects of morphological complexity on processing in second-language speakers of English.
