Ellen Lau

I’m an associate professor in the Department of Linguistics and the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program at the University of Maryland. I serve as the Co-Director of the KIT-Maryland MEG Lab and am a member of the Maryland Language Science Center.  My research aims to gain insight into the mental algorithms and representations that support language comprehension, and their neural implementation.

PhD students interested in working with me can apply through the Linguistics PhD program or the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) PhD program. **Note that the NACS program often has an unusually early application deadline.
