Isabelle Dautriche

I am currently a post-doctorate at the Centre for Language Evolution (University of Edinburgh) in lovely Scotland working with Kenny Smith and Hugh Rabagliati.

I am interested in language development, its relationship to other aspects of cognition and its link to the structure of languages. In particular I focus on word learning: How do children quickly learn huge vocabularies, without training or feedback, and in noisy environments? To answer this question, I rely on psycholinguistic experiments with children and adults which I combined with a computational approach to formalise and quantify my hypotheses.
