I am a Junior at Penn State. I am from State College and have been learning German since I was in the 7th grade. I currently work in Dr. Jackson's lab, where I have been working for three semesters. I am excited to be completing my PIRE project in Braunschweig, Germany at Braunschweig TU with Dr. Holger Hopp. I have been to several countries in Europe, and I hope I can visit a few more in my free time in Germany!

Project Summary:

My project deals with interference, looking at how the presence of cognates affects L2 sentence comprehension.
