I am a Lecturer in the Faculty of Foreign Languages at Hoa Sen University and a Researcher in the Computational Linguistics Center at Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh University of Science. I received my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and my BA in English and Linguistics from the University of Minnesota.
My research interests lie at the interfaces of syntax, semantics, psycholinguistics, and corpus linguistics. I use a range of experimental methodologies, statistical modeling techniques, and computational tools to investigate how humans encode and retrieve linguistic information, as well as how this information can inform the way we teach language to computers. My recent work has focused on readability assessment, pronoun resolution, and temporal reference in Vietnamese, processing complexity in English, as well as agreement systems in Algonquian languages.
Here is my CV.
