Klara Marton, Ph.D. Klara Marton is a neuropsychologist, who has a doctorate in Developmental Psychology and a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences. She is interested in the development and changes of language and cognition that occur across lifetime in different clinical populations and in individuals who speak different languages. Her research focuses on the interactions among various cognitive functions, such as working memory, inhibition and attention control and on additional processes that underlie language comprehension and production in monolingual and bilingual speakers.
Jungmee Yoon is a doctoral student in the lab at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her research interest broadly involves cognitive processes underlying language functions, with specific areas of interest including bilingualism and cross-language interference in lexical retrieval. She also likes to practice Yoga and Pilates.
Luca Campanelli is a Ph.D. student in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, after obtaining a M.A. in Psychology at Sapienza University of Rome – Italy. He is interested in statistics, research methods, computational linguistics, vocal expression of emotion, and cognitive styles. He currently studies the relationship between working memory and language processing in children and adults. His interests and hobbies include jazz and classical music, film, poetry, manual works, cooking, travel, hiking, historic motorcycles, and kayaking.
Jessica Scheuer MS, CCC/Speech-Language-Pathology, doctoral student; Research interests: Executive function development, ADHD, and emerging narrative skills.
Nathalie Loiseau is a visiting PhD student in Interpreting Studies from the University of Geneva with a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation, and a free-lance conference interpreter. Her current research interests include aspects of multitasking in interpreters and orchestra conductors as well as language testing for interpreting purposes. She has been a pedagogical assistant in interpreting at FTI, Geneva, from 2010 to 2013, and recently graduated from the MAS in interpreter training.
Deniz Erol is a student in Professor Klara Marton’s Language and Cognition Laboratory. Her interests include the roles of executive function and working memory in language processing, both in clinical and nonclinical populations. Currently, she is involved in a project investigating how children with Specific Language Impairment use their cognitive functions to engage in language tasks.
Deniz Erol graduated with a BA from Columbia University in 2009 and is a native New Yorker. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the city, hiking, yoga, literature, and Turkish language and culture.
Deepti Wadhera is a doctoral student who graduated from Boston University in 2013 with a B.A. in Biology. Her research interests include understanding bilingualism and its effect on executive functioning in populations of different ages. She is also interested in phonology in second language learners of English.
Deepti’s other interests include Indian classical dance, music and swimming.
Lia Pazuelo graduated from Kean University with an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology. She also holds an M.A. in Psychology from John Jay College. She is interested in studying the connection between non-linguistic cognitive abilities and language production and comprehension, and ultimately, finding a way to transfer this knowledge to the clinical work of speech-language pathology. Currently she is studying the interaction of processing ambiguous language and working memory. She loves spending her free time watching classical movies and traveling.
Yasmine Ouchikh is a Ph.D. student who graduated from the City College of New York in 2014 with her BA in Psychology. She is interested in the effects of bilingualism on speech perception and executive functioning in young and old adults. She is also interested in the neurolinguistics of bilingualism, neuroplasticity, cognition, and information overload.
Zhamilya Gazman is a Ph.D. student who is interested in emotion regulation, bilingualism, working memory. She graduated with an MS in Neuroscience and Education (Teachers College, Columbia University, 2016).
