A bit about Felix Engelmann
I received my MA in Computational Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science in 2009 from the University of Potsdam, Germany. In my PhD, I studied the interaction of working memory processes, eye movement control and individual differences in sentence comprehension in reading, with an emphasis on strategic underspecification and memory interference. In October 2015, I joined LuCiD as a Research Associate.
I am interested in the common cognitive principles that give rise to complex individual and adaptive behaviour in language processing and acquisition. I investigate symbolic and connectionist approaches to computational modelling of cognition and learning.
Role in LuCiD
In LuCiD, I am developing statistical and cognitive models to cross-linguistically investigate the mechanism and the determining factors of the acquisition of word morphology.
