Elise Hopman wins Graduate Women In Science scholarship for her dissertation research

Congratulations to graduate student Elise Hopman, who has been awarded the Ruth Dickie Scholarship by the Madison Graduate Women in Science chapter for her planned dissertation research. The Ruth Dickie Scholarship is named after the late Ruth Dickie, a UW-Madison professor who cared passionately about graduate education and research efforts by women in science. The proposed dissertation study follows up on Elise’s earlier work showing that second language production training benefits grammar learning more than comprehension training. In new artificial language learning studies, Elise will investigate how well production training generalizes, both to novel lexical items and to parts of the language trained in other modalities.
