Samuel Gibbon

Research Assistant


Biography:

I am a Research Assistant working with Prof Usha Goswami on the BabyRhythm project – a longitudinal study (2 months to 2.5 years) that uses EEG, eye-tracking, motion capture, and a variety of language measures to investigate the link between rhythmic entrainment and language acquisition.

Before coming to Cambridge I worked with the Institute for Language, Cognition, and Computation at the University of Edinburgh on several projects including the Penn Discourse Treebank, and Universal Dependencies. I also worked for several years as a language teacher.

I have an MSc in Psychological Research, and a BA in Linguistics and Language Teaching.

Journal Club:

I organise the Neuroscience in Education Journal Club, which runs twice a month.

Cambridge Science Festival 2018:

I am co-organising the Science Festival this year. We’ll have a portable EEG scanner, come along and learn about our research! Check the website for updates.
