Graduate Program Chair


  • PhD, Linguistics, Cornell University


Dr. Wang was a postdoctoral Research Associate in the Center for Mind, Brain and Learning at the University of Washington. Her main areas of research are phonetics, neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, second language acquisition, and cognitive science. Using behavioral and neuro-imaging techniques, she has been studying the processing and acquisition of second-language speech sounds by both children and adults with the goal of learning more about brain plasticity as well as how multisensory brain systems cooperate functionally in cognitive processing. She directs the Language and Brain Lab.
