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 currently an undergraduate student in my final year of Honours Psychology with a minor in Linguistics. I am interested in the psychological mechanisms of language, especially language acquisition and speech-language deficits, as well as the cognitive development of children. I am completing a research project with the MIDC exploring the ability to learn general rules or patterns in bilinguals and monolinguals. I hope to go on to work with children with speech-language deficits, and the MIDC grants me the opportunity to have invaluable hands-on experience studying language acquisition in infants. .

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.
