PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

Shiri Lev-Ari

I started my journey at the Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students at Tel-Aviv University, to which I will always be indebted. It took a few false starts (sorry Maths and African Studies), but once I discovered the study of language from a cognitive psychology perspective, I went on to graduate with a MA summa cum laude in Cognitive Studies of Language Use  under the supervision of Rachel Giora, and was set to start my world journey: A PhD in Psychology at The University of Chicago under the supervision of Boaz Keysar, a post-doc at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique in Paris with Sharon Peperkamp, and a staff scientist position at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. In 2017 I a moved to Royal Holloway University of London as a lecturer.

My main interest has always been to understand how the social environment shapes our linguistic skills and representations. Check the other tabs to know more about what I learned so far.
