A bit about Louah Sirri

After obtaining my MA degree in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Psychology from Paris Descartes University, my PhD work aimed at exploring the lexical-semantic organization in the monolingual and bilingual developing brain. Following this I joined the LuCiD team at Lancaster University as a Senior Research Associate. I am currently a Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University

 

My Role in LuCiD

I was a postdoc during Phase 1, on a project investigating how joint attention and social cognitive skills are linked to language development during and beyond infancy
