About Me

I am the lab manager for the Fedorenko Lab at MIT. The goal of our research is to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms that allow us to produce and comprehend language. In addition to being involved in experiment design, subject recruitment, and data analysis, I act as a liaison between our lab and collaborators from around the world. I also maintain the lab website, handle the subject database, and train new members on our extensive code base.

I was part of the first class to graduate from UM with a B.S. in Cognitive Science. As of 1/22/2017, I am still on the front page of the department website (click the arrows on the picture slideshow thingie until you see my beautiful face with the other 5 grads). I also have a black belt in taekwondo, enjoy playing guitar (especially jamming out to this gem and, more recently, this one), cook vegetarian food, and try to not break my bones snowboarding every year.

If you are interested in the Fedorenko Lab’s research or would like to use our scripts in your own experiments, feel free to contact me at
