We are a group of researchers working within the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

In our lab, we want to understand how babies and children learn language. We ask questions like, “How do babies know which sounds to pay attention to, and which to ignore?“, “What predicts whether a baby will learn words quickly, or will take more time?“, and “How are babies deciding what words mean, and how does this process change as we get older?

To answer questions like these, we run experiments with babies, children and adults, and use a variety of methods to measure learning, such as eye-tracking and EEG.
