After finishing my postdoc training at Gabrieli lab in 2017, I started as an assistant professor at the University of Delaware in the Department of Linguistics & Cognitive Science. I also hold joint appointments at the Department of Psychology & Brain Sciences and Communication Sciences and Disorders Program. My research goal is to understand the neurobiological organization of language in the human brain. I use a variety of behavioral (eye-tracking) and neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, MEG, EEG, and DTI) to study the relationship between language learning, cognitive skills, and brain development in both children and adults.
