I am interested in memory for conversation and coordination of participants in conversation.

I am currently a Graduate student at Vanderbilt University. Being from a medical family, I started out working in a transplant immunology lab in high school. During college, I rediscovered my fascination with human communication. I followed this interest to a doctorate program in psychology and my research on conversation with adviser Sarah Brown-Schmidt.
