Speaker bio: Dr. Lyn Tieu completed her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Connecticut in 2013. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in the Centre for Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) at Macquarie University.

Lyn’s research focuses primarily on children’s acquisition of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. Many of her projects have investigated children’s production and comprehension of different kinds of sentence structures, their understanding of logical expressions, and their ability to make inferences that go beyond the literal meanings of the sentences that they hear.
