Introduction
I am interested in human sentence processing by using brain image tools such as electroencephalography (EEG) and investigating neural signals from computational approaches. My current research examines the time and frequency domain analysis of annotated corpora and aims to see how periodicity is reflected in sentence structure across languages. I intend for my future research to integrate models for language by combining theory and cognitive neuroscience.​

Event-related potential components are sensitive to the processes underlying how questions are understood. We use so-called “covert” wh-questions in Mandarin to probe how such components generalize across different kinds of constructions. This study shows that covert Mandarin wh-questions do not elicit anterior negativities associated with memory m...
Thesis
Human language has the unique characteristic where we can create infinite and novel phrases or sentences; this stems from the ability of composition, which allows us to combine smaller units into bigger meaningful units. Composition involves us following syntactic rules stored in memory and building well-formed structures incrementally. Research ha...
