Crystal Lee

Cognitive scientist focused on language development. I received my Bachelor's in Brain and Cognitive Science and Linguistics from University of Rochester in May 2018. I am currently an affiliated researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Language Development department, working with Caroline Rowland. Following this, I will be a graduate student in the Psychology department at Princeton University, working with Casey Lew-Williams and Adele Goldberg. Check out my CV here.
