New Connections Trip to Mexico For Lab

Last week we were able to make new connections between our lab, la Asociación Mexicana de Terapeutas en Comunicación Humana, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and new collaborators from the UNAM.

Meag Horn, bilingual SLP from Nationwide Children’s and John gave talks at an event that forms part of the Asociación’s efforts toward providing continuing education for SLPs. This really excellent event was organized by Asociación President Ximena Carreto-Guadarrama, who is a linguist, SLP and lab member.

We also got the chance to spend some time with our neuropsychologist friends from the UNAM, FES, Iztacala and learn about their fascinating projects, while working on some of our current collaborations.

It was a great trip and we hope to continue to deepen our connections and do more and better basic and applied language science!

Welcome, Janelle!

We are glad to welcome Janelle Kiker to our lab! Janelle is a Spanish and Education major, who will be working with Melissa on her project.

Glad to have you on our team, Janelle!

¡Enhorabuena Ana!

Our lab is very proud to announce that Ana Arrieta, our lab-mate, has been awarded the “Medalla al Mérito Universitario” at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, which, according to the UAM’s website, is given to the student who has earned the highest grades in their cohort, upon completion of their degree.

Go Ana!!

Dos Tragedias

We are thankful for the partial return to normality in Mexico City and we are outraged that similar levels of normality, in the form of basic services, have not yet returned to Puerto Rico.

We are also thankful that all of our seres queridos are safe, and proud of our lab members who have been helping to make the situations better, through work in brigadas, donations or whatever else they have been able to do.

Congratulations, Carolina!

Congratulations to Carolina Gonzalo Llera on defending her dissertation on L2 Spanish phonology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid!

¡Enhorabuena, Carolina! ¡Estamos todos orgullosos de ti!
