I am a cognitive scientist interested in understanding the cognitive and neural bases of semantic memory and its relation to language processing and representation. Broadly, how do we know what things mean, how does the brain give rise to those meanings, and how does language help us to access and organize those meanings? I use neuroimaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging to answer these questions, in addition to a range of behavioral techniques.
