My research centers on the representation, production, processing, and acquisition of language and, more generally, of knowledge. I am currently quantifying lexical variation using corpora of spontaneous and experimentally elicited English and Spanish speech and using these data to built statistical models of language representation and language change. I have recently developed a featural representation of skills and learning environments that can relate learning and performance.


My research is interdisciplinary work that uses statistical, computational, distributional, and experimental methodologies, drawing on data from large corpora, psycholinguistic tasks, typological surveys, and speech errors.

I am currently the Assistant Director of the Center for Research on Training at CU, established by a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant to investigate training of knowledge and skill.
