I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Computer Science, San Diego State University.

My research interest lies in the intersection of computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, and cognitive sciences. I use machine learning and other computational methods to study the short-term adaptation and long-term change in language.

I am hiring 1 to 2 highly self-motivated Ph.D. students starting from Fall semester 2020. Please click here or here for more information.
