Otto Hahn Medal awarded to Limor Raviv
26 April 2021
Each year, the Max Planck Society awards up to 30 young scientists and researchers for outstanding scientific achievements with the Otto Hahn Medal. Limor Raviv of the MPI for Psycholinguistics will receive this prestigious award for her experimental work that has uncovered how the social environment shapes the grammar of languages we use.
Limor carried out her award winning investigations during her time as a PhD student at the MPI’s Psychology of Language Department under the supervision of Antje Meyer, and defended her dissertation in May 2020. Her thesis is entitled "Language and society: how social pressures shape grammatical structure".
