Hi, I’m Cara!

Iā€™m a second year linguistics PhD student at New York University working with Tal Linzen in the Computation and Psycholinguistics Lab. My research uses methods from computational modeling and experimental linguistics to explore what signals are necessary in the linguistic input for statistical and human learners to generalize in a human-like way.

Before coming to NYU, I completed my BA in linguistics and BS in computer science at the National University of Singapore advised by Michael Yoshitaka Erlewine and Min-Yen Kan.

Outside of linguistics, I enjoy baking, ceramics, and puppy pictures.
