Research Initiatives

2000- Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Lab - Shared Lab Structure. We have developed a shared lab environment that serves many faculty and students, avoiding individual 'ownership' of specific facilities and enabling flexibility in research and broader interaction. This was started with David Poeppel (now Director of Max Planck Institute, Frankfurt), and Stephen Crain (now director of MACCS, Macquarie University, Sydney), and continued with Jeff Lidz, Bill Idsardi, Ellen Lau, and Maria Polinsky.
2008- Interdisciplinary training. I have led efforts to build interdisciplinary graduate training in language science, together with colleagues from at least 10 departments at the University of Maryland. Students gain broad training and serve as 'research ambassadors', and also develop the skills needed to be effective leaders and agents of change in their future careers. Our program received support from NSF via a $3M IGERT award (2008-2015) and then a $3M NRT award (2015-2020). We are the first group in any field of science or engineering to win both of these awards. In 2014 the interdisciplinary training efforts were extended to the undergraduate level via the PULSAR program, led by Rochelle Newman and Tess Wood.
2001-2012 Neuroimaging. In 2001 David Poeppel and I established the Maryland-KIT Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Laboratory. Originally part of the CNL Laboratory in Linguistics it was subsequently incorporated into the Maryland Neuroimaging Center, which I developed jointly with Nathan Fox (Human Development) and Bob Dooling (Psychology) from 2009-2012. MNC's MRI facility was supported by a $2M NSF grant, together with generous support from UMD.
2013- Maryland Language Science Center (LSC). In 2013 we built on the successes of our interdisciplinary training efforts to launch LSC, an umbrella organization that serves 200+ language scientists across 17 academic units at UMD, ranging from education to engineering. LSC aims to raise the profile and impact of language science within the university and beyond. It provides infrastructure to support education, research, and diverse partnerships. It is supported by investments from the Provost, the Division of Research, and multiple colleges of the university.
2014- Langscape is an online portal for language diversity: langscape.umd.edu. It combines mapping of 6400 languages throughout the world with aggregation of resources including language descriptions, audio, and text materials. The aim is to serve diverse audiences, including researchers in multiple fields, organizations that depend on rapid access to information about understudied languages (e.g., government and NGOs), plus public and K-12 students.
2015- Global Research Alliance in Language (GRAIL). GRAIL is an in-development initiative that aims to build interdisciplinary language science on a worldwide scale. It is being developed within the Universitas21 network of 25 research universities from 6 continents. GRAIL pursues a new model for internationalization of research that aligns interests across students, researchers, institutions, and funders. It involves student ambassadors, linked training activities, public-facing initiatives, and collaborative research.
