I’m currently a second-year PhD student in the SLS program at Michigan State University.

Right now, I am working on my first qualifying paper under supervision of Dr. Aline Godfroid. I received my M.A. from University of Maryland, College Park, under supervision of Dr. Robert M. DeKeyser, and B.A. from Kanda University of International Studies (Japan), supervised by Dr. Siwon Park. My primary research interest areas are cognitive psychology of second language learning and usage-based and cognitive linguistics.
