Biography:

My research interests lie in understanding how the language system supports the mapping from visual or spoken input to the level of accessing word meaning, and how this can inform models of language representation in the brain. I am particularly interested in examining how different types of information about a word are identified across time during language processing (letters, grammatical information, meaning, etc.) using neuroimaging techniques such as magnetoencephalography (MEG).
