I am interested in network level processing of language, and the online integration of linguistic content as it is being heard or read. I am also interested in identifying differences in levels of language network coherence in the brain, dependent upon learning or on general characteristics of reading ability and difficulties. I utilize a mixture of behavioral and neuroimaging methods (MEG/ERP, HDFT, fMRI) to gain insight into the neural underpinnings of language processing.
