Linguistics Department Mind, Brain, Behavior (MBB) award announcements

Kate Davidson has recently been awarded a grant from MBB with Co-PI Jesse Snedeker (Psychology) which will support Annemarie Kocab’s post doctoral research on linguistic complexity  in Nicaraguan Sign Language at the M&M Lab next year.

Gennaro Chierchia has received a “small” MBB grant through which he will sponsor a visiting position in the fall for our own alumnus Greg Scontras (UC Irvine) who will co-teach with Gennaro and Stuart Shieber (Harvard Computer Science) a seminar on the linguistic significance of the probabilistic lambda-calculus. 

Congratulations to both Kate and Gennaro!
