Alexis Black received her PhD in Linguistics and Cognitive Science from the University of British Columbia in 2018. She subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Richard Aslin at Haskins Laboratories before joining the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences as Assistant Professor in January 2020. She researches how linguistic forms and concepts emerge from early learning processes and perceptual biases, using both behavioural (e.g., eyetracking) and neuroimaging (EEG and fNIRS) techniques.
