Qathy Dana

Kathy I graduated from Northeastern University in 2016 with a B.A. in Psycholinguistics and a minor in American Sign Language. My research interests include investigating the psycholinguistic basis of linguistic preferences across the world’s languages, both spoken and signed, and learning more about the phonological structure of ASL and other signed languages.

SAM_5157 (2) I am a first-year PhD student in Professor Iris Berent’s Phonology and Reading Laboratory. I completed my Bachelor’s at the University of Chicago where I was involved in research on gesture and speech in learning. I am interested in what preferences in gesture and sign can tell us about language.
