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 across the last decade has been singing in the choir at the All Souls Church Unitarian. An even more unexpected gift of the last few years has been to rejoin the Catholic church, at Holy Redeemer.
