Laurel Perkins to UCLA

Huge congratulations to Laurel Perkins *19, who is to be Assistant Professor of Linguistics at UCLA! Professor Perkins will join 2010 alum Tim Hunter in handling the department's computational linguistics curriculum, in tandem with her work in language acquisition, which gave us a dissertation on How Grammars Grow: Argument Structure and the Acquisition of Non-Basic Syntax. Between graduating and securing the UCLA job, Laurel became a post-doctoral fellow with Anne Christophe at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique in the Ecole normale supérieure in Paris.
