I’ll be presenting some of my research as part of a guest lecture series in the undergraduate psycholinguistics class taught by Dr. Samantha Wray on Feb 24. I’ll be discussing language acquisition, bilingualism, and neurolinguistics and covering topics ranging from how babies learn the sounds of their languages to how adult bilinguals manage the sound systems of their two languages.
I will be presenting a poster for a project titled “Do bilinguals better discriminate novel vowel contrasts? Neural correlates of perceptual assimilation using MEG decoding” with Laura Gwilliams, Esti Blanco-Elorrieta, and Alec Marantz.
This project has been brewing for some time and then data acquisition was interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic so we’re working with what we have and we’re excited to present it as part of the Sandbox at SNL 2020. I’m presenting during Poster Session H on Saturday, October 24th. Stop by and chat about speech perception and the brain!
Starting Fall 2020, I am delighted to announce that I am continuing my studies as a graduate student in the Linguistics department at the University of California, San Diego. A brief summary of my research program as well as the other students in my new cohort can be found here.
I will be attending LabPhon17, virtually hosted by the University of British Columbia from Vancouver, BC. Let me know if you’d like to catch up and plan a watch party for a presentation!
