Elika Bergelson is the Principal Investigator for the SEEDLingS project. She is excited to be doing this work within the Rochester Babylab, thanks to an NIH Early Independence Award.
Elika received her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, where she first became interested in infant word-learning, after strong research training at the University of Maryland as a Baggett Fellow, and at NYU. Her training is in psychology, linguistics, and cognitive science and she thinks figuring out how babies learn language is just about the coolest question out there.
After SEEDLingS data collection ends, the Bergelson lab will be moving to Duke University.
