Andrea E. Martin

I am interested in how language is represented and processed in the mind and brain, and in discovering the computational mechanisms and principles that shape spoken language processing.

I have a BA in Cognitive Science from Hampshire College (2004), and an MA and PhD in Experimental Psychology from New York University (2006, 2010; supervisor: Professor Brian McElree). My PhD work used the speed-accuracy tradeoff procedure and eye-tracking during reading to study the processing of ellipsis from a cue-based memory perspective. From 2010-12, I was a post-doc at the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain and Language in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain, where I used electrophysiology to track retrieval interference during language processing. From 2012-2017, I was a lecturer in Psychology in the School of Philosophy, Psychology, and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh.

I joined the Psychology of Language department in September 2016. I am interested in understanding language production and comprehension as an integrated system, in developing a common computational architecture for both processes, and in the relative contributions of abstract linguistic knowledge and sensory input during spoken language processing.
