I am a senior at Boston College studying Math, Computer Science, and Philosophy. I am interested in holistically understanding aspects of cognition, such as language, in order to develop realistic Bayesian and Connectionist models.
I am a junior linguistics major with a minor in CS. I think computational and data-intensive methods can be invaluable in informing linguistic theories.
I'm a junior at Boston College studying Psychology and Mathematics. I'm interested in how we can use statistics and math to model aspects of human cognition, such as language acquisition and intelligence.
I'm a sophomore at Boston College studying math and computer science. I'm interested in the intersection of computer science and linguistics, especially machine learning and natural language processing.
I am a sophomore at Boston College studying Psychology and Computer Science. I am interested in how language acquisition changes from childhood to adulthood and how we can apply knowledge from computer science to better our understanding of psychology.
I am a senior at Boston College studying Computer Science and Economics. I'm interested in the ways machine learning algorithms can model the way the brain works, and in building the software that helps us discover them.
I am a junior at Boston College majoring in Computer Science B.A. I am interested in the relationship between the ways in which the human mind and computers process language and how computer scientists, linguists, and psychologists can work together to gain greater understanding of both natural language processing and early childhood development.
I am a junior at Boston College majoring in psychology (B.A.) and minoring in music and Hispanic studies. I am interested in language acquisition in children, specifically when learning a second or third language. Further, I am excited about investigating any cognitive or developmental implications additional languages may lead to.
I am a sophomore at Boston College majoring Psychology and minoring in Journalism. I am highly interested in learning about social cognition – whether it can be dissociated from general cognition, how to measure it and its advantages in everyday life.
My name is Madeleine McCann and I’m from a small farm town in New Hampshire called Hollis! I plan on majoring in Psychology and Neuroscience, potentially minoring in spanish! Even though I don’t look it at all, I’m half Puertorican and have grown up immersed in that culture. Language has always been an interest of mine, I took spanish in high school and love learning it. I can’t wait to tie my curiosity in psychology and language together!
I'm a sophomore at Boston College majoring in Psychology and minoring in Arabic studies. I’m interested in second language acquisition and bilingualism at an early age. I’m also interested in further exploring the phenomenon of multilingualism by combining different perspectives such as sociology, psychology, linguistics, and neuroscience.
I am a Boston College senior with a major in computer science and minors in chemistry and studio art. I hope to expand online surveys in order to better understand the nuances of lingual development, specifically second language acquisition.
I am an undergraduate student studying Psychology at the University of Bath. I am interested in how young children acquire language and why some children have difficulties with language development. I am also excited to learn about new methods used in this field of developmental research.
I am senior at Boston College majoring in Psychology (B.S.), minoring in Economics and on the Pre-Med track. Being from a Hispanic background and speaking Spanish as a first language, I am curious about the way children acquire language and what is the prime age for language acquisition. I am also interested in the way being bilingual changes the wiring of the different brain centers.
I’m a junior in Oberlin College majoring in Psycholigy and Economics with concentrations in cognitive science and statistics. I’m interested in how language acquisition works for children with different languages in common. And I’m looking forward to learning about the most advanced methods used in cognitive/developmental psych!
I am a first year Masters student at the Lynch School studying Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology. I taught English for over 6 years which fostered my interest in SLA. Overall, I want to improve SLA using an interdisciplinary approach, combining my background in psychology and neuroscience with my experience in education and development.
