We know that infants become more attuned to the sounds of their native language at around 10 months of age. We also know that acoustic cues play a role in language processing. Under the supervision of Laurianne Cabrera and Thierry Nazzi, my PhD project will explore how this acoustic processing relates to this early language specialisation. I plan on looking at how the developmental timeline of acoustic cue perception relates to the timeline of language specialisation.
Prior to joining the Babylab, I completed a Master’s degree in Cognitive Science via the Cogmaster, and my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Wake Forest University.
