Rushen Shi, Ph.D.
Dr. Rushen Shi’s research group focuses on fundamental questions in child language. Their research questions include how infants and young children acquire their linguistic representations, such as the development of phonetic categories, early word recognition, the learning of meaning, and initial acquisition of morpho-syntactic structures. They attempt to understand the mechanisms underlying language acquisition and the interaction between the input and the grammar.
