Research Interests: How is meaning represented in the brain? I am interested in semantic representation in language, the neural circuits that support these representations, and how the process of making meaning is a dynamic interaction between what’s in the brain (i.e., an individuals experiences) and what’s in the world (i.e., contextual demands).
