I graduated from Cornell University with a major in developmental psychology. I’m interested in how children learn words, concepts, and language in only a few years with limited cognitive capacity and limited experience with the world. I’m also interested in integrating computational modeling and big data into cognitive development research.

I’m a second-year PhD student in the Computational Psycholinguistics Lab at MIT, Brain & Cognitive Sciences where I (1) use computational language models as psycholinguistic hypothesis generators and (2) apply insights from human language processing to make better computational models. Prior to MIT, I was a Ronald E. McNair Scholar in Computer Science at Boston College where I worked with the Language Learning Lab and the Social and Cognitive Computational Neuroscience Lab.

Hello! I'm a second-year Master's student at the University at Buffalo studying data analysis. I previously worked in Professor Hartshorne's lab as an undergraduate and loved it so much, I had to come back! Currently, I am interested in personally learning new methods of statistical analysis with which we can extract more information from our data. Being multilingual, I am also interested in heritage speakers and second language acquisition.
I graduated from Boston College in 2019 with a double major in Psychology and Linguistics. I'm interested in research concerning bilingualism, second language acquisition, and language attrition. I am also interested in sociolinguistics.
I am a sophomore at BC from Charleston, South Carolina. I am studying Psychology BS in MCAS on the pre-med track. I am currently in Baby Talk - a course about language acquisition. I am excited to meet new people in the lab and learn new skills through this position.
I am a freshman at Boston College, majoring in Applied Psychology and Human Development. As a bilingual born and raised in China, I understand how language serves as a pathway for understanding and hence am interested in unraveling how multilingualism can shape our experience of the world. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of this team and can’t wait to learn from everyone!
I am a freshman at Boston College, majoring in neuroscience. I am currently really enjoying cognitive science and am excited to gain more research experience. I like to study language understanding from the perspective of building neural models, and I am very excited to be a part of this amazing team!
I am a junior majoring in Psychology BS with a computer science minor. As a multilingual student, I am interested in studying psychological changes due to the acquisition of multiple languages for both kids and adults. I will be working on my senior honor thesis from Fall 2021, researching on the interference of languages with international school students.
I’m a sophomore at Boston College and I’m majoring in Psychology and Communication. I’m interested in how people have different thought processes when they speak different languages. I’m also interested in how language acquisition stages differ when people are learning their first and second languages. I really look forward to learning more and gaining research experience with the lab.
