I am a doctoral student in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences (PPLS) at the University of Edinburgh, supervised by Hannah Rohde, Antonella Sorace, and Thomas Bak

My interests lie at the intersection of cognitive ageing, second language acquisition, and the pragmatics of human communication. For my PhD, I'm investigating the cognitive mechanisms underlying communicative perspective-taking over the lifespan and the impact of later-life language learning on cognitive ageing.

Prior to this, I received a BA in Spanish and English Literature from Georgetown University, MA in Spanish Linguistics from Middlebury College (in Spain and Mexico), and MSc in Developmental Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh.

I volunteer for PPLS in the following capacities:

Linguistics Circle Committee Member
LEL PG Conference Committee Member
Language Lunch Committee Member
Bilingualism Matters Volunteer
