Research Interests

My research focuses on prediction and prediction error – the difference between expectation and outcome. I use computational modeling and fMRI to examine how prediction affects the processing of sentences, as well as how interference from items in working memory affects reading comprehension.

Grant Support

Postdoctoral Researcher, “Retrieval interference in skilled and unskilled reading comprehension” (A197)
