Alexis Black

I am a PhD student in the department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia, and a researcher in Dr. Carla Hudson Kam’s Language and Learning Lab and Dr. Janet Werker’s Infant Studies Centre. I am interested in the mechanisms learners use to detect patterns in sensory input and form categories, and how memory capacity constrains/interacts with language acquisition and use. My dissertation research examines the unfolding process of auditory statistical learning across different developmental stages.

I am also interested in the connections between linguistic perception and production, and have previously done work on subconscious phonetic imitation and the production and discrimination of bilabial consonants.
