I am currently a doctoral student in Psychology. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at McGill University and my Masters degree at the University of Illinois, in Urbana-Champaign. My main interest is in statistical learning and the mechanisms by which statistical patterns are generalized. In the domain of language, I study how infants, toddlers and adults learn about the allowable sequencing of their language, and how they generalize newly-learned sequences. In the domain of physical reasoning, I am interested in how children track statistical patterns and generate mechanisms that can explain these patterns and allows them to generalize the patterns across events.

I am an undergraduate student in my third year of psychology with minors in behavioural science and sociology. I am interested in the cognitive development and processes of language acquisition, as well as developmental psychopathology. I am volunteering in MIDC on a project that explores the ability to learn general rules or patterns in bilinguals and monolinguals. After university I hope to go on to do graduate work in developmental clinical psychology. .

I am currently an undergraduate student in my last year majoring in psychology and minoring in linguistics. Due to being around children for the past 13 years, I am very interested in anything child-related, especially in how they acquire language. I am also very curious about how children learn about their environment. I decided to volunteer at the MIDC to gain more research experience in the multifaceted world of developmental science. I am currently working on setting up the baby testing room at the MIDC while learning about the different studies that go on in the lab. I hope to go into the field of communication sciences and disorders, specifically to become a Speech-Language Pathologist.   Hello, I am currently in my second year at McGill University majoring in psychology with a minor in linguistics. I have explored in the past different fields of psychology that may interest me, and my exploration has led me to believe that children development is a field that interests me. As a result, I found the MIDC to be an interesting work field for me. I am happy to have the chance to work at the MIDC and be able to run experiments with infants during the 2018 summer. At the end of the summer I hope I will have widened my knowledge about infant development and understand the functioning of a child development laboratory better.

I am an undergraduate entering the last year of my degree in psychology, interested in learning and human motivation. I'm volunteering with the MIDC to better understand what cognitive development research entails.
