That’s a wrap (for Spring 2017)!

We accomplished a lot in the Spring 2017 semester. Let’s take stock:

  • 2 Honors theses from Quentin Ullrich (chair: Prof. Parker) and Alexa Rosalsky (chair: Prof. Lunden)

One article appeared in Trends in Cognitive Science (co-authored with recent alumnus, Daniel Lantz) one in Journal of Memory and Language (co-authored with Colin Phillips), and one in an edited volume on Language Processing and Disorders (co-authored with Mike Shvartsman and Julie Van Dyke)

  • Prof. Parker gave 3 presentations (2 posters and 1 talk) at CUNY 2017
  • A multidisciplinary team of faculty including Prof. Parker established the new Data Science Program at W&M, which students can pursue a degree in starting this Fall
  • Prof. Parker obtained a Faculty Summer Research grant to support research in the lab this summer
  • And we churned through a series of exciting lab meetings from students and faculty!

Whew! Certainly looking forward to Summer!
