My primary project investigates the real-time interpretation of pronouns regarding individual’s variable experience with (human) gender identities. More relevantly, I am collaborating on the project “Attentiveness to People Like Me: endocrine effects on social learning”, which is currently examining the contribution of prenatal hormone exposure to individual variation in linguistic perceptual behaviours which may influence the way sound changes spread across a population.
