"Joshua Williams"

In 2012, I graduated from the University of Kansas with two bachelor’s degrees in Speech-Language-Hearing: Sciences and Disorders (SPLH) and Linguistics. Currently I am in my second year of graduate school at Indiana University pursing a Joint-Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and Psychological and Brain Sciences and a Non-Clinical Masters in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I have received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through both Indiana’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) in the “Dynamics of Brain-Body-Environment Systems in Behavior and Cognition” as well as the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) through a grant that I proposed as a senior at KU.

I am interested in understanding bilingual lexical networks, second language acquisition, cognitive effects of bilingualism, and individual differences using neuroimaging, neurophysiological, and behavioral methods.
