Hello to four graduate student visitors

This semester we welcome four visiting PhD students: Michele Alves, Christian Broadbeck, Emily Darley and Alex de Carvalho. Michele is writing a dissertation at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro titled "Processing of gender, number, and person agreement features in pronoun resolution in Brazilian Portuguese." Christian is in Psychology at NYU, and part of the Neurolinguistics Lab, researching such topics as brain activity during resolution of reference. Emily is from the lab of alumna Nina Kazanina, at the School of Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol, where she investigates the role of working memory in sentence processing. Alex joins us from the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique at the École Normale Supérieure. He studies language acquisition, working on topics such as prosodic cues to syntactic structure, as in this forthcoming article.
