Both Chris Cox and Tianlin Wang successfully defended their dissertations in the last two weeks and have graduated from our department. Congratulations to both!
On December 14th, Tianlin defended her dissertation ‘Units of meaning in Mandarin Chinese’. Tianlin is now doing a postdoc at Notre Dame in Jill Lany’s lab, and continues to collaborate with LCNL on a study regarding the semantic representations related to reading Chinese characters.
Chris defended his dissertation, titled “How does the anterior temporal lobe represent semantic knowledge? A study of network representational similarity in fMRI and ECoG” on December 5th and moved to Manchester to pursue a postdoc position in Matthew Lambon Ralph’s lab. Chris will continue to collaborate with LCNL on a computational model of dual-dialect language learning.
