I am married to Thomaz. My married name is Ellen Alvares de Azevedo Lau, but for obvious reasons I continue to use the shorter version professionally!

We have two sons: Tadeu (July 2014) and Antonio John (June 2016).

My sister is Rachel. My ‘brother’ is Diogo (also a psycholinguist!).

A great and unexpected gift in my life in recent years has been the chance to get married in, be a member of, and sing in the choir at the All Souls Church Unitarian.
