    Eline R Kupers

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychology

    BioEline Kupers is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Professor Kalanit Grill-Spector in the Psychology Department. Her research focuses on how visual information is processed in space and time in the human brain. She uses psychophysics, eye tracking, and neuroimaging techniques (MRI, EEG/MEG) in combination with computational modeling to answer her research questions.

    Eline received her PhD from New York University, working with Professor Jonathan Winawer and Professor Marisa Carrasco. During her graduate studies, she worked on models of the human visual system that describe the first steps in seeing (from the retina to primary visual cortex). In her postdoctoral work, she continues to work on computational models of vision, but focuses on the neural mechanisms involved in high-level vision.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Political Science

    BioI received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2021. My research studies how electoral politics translates into democratic policymaking, especially in modern American Politics. I also develop statistical software to improve the measurement of public opinion and electoral behavior. My postdoctoral work at Stanford will include research with Professor Doug Rivers on new data and survey methods for describing the microgeography of electoral behavior. From July 2022, I will join the faculty at Yale University as Assistant Professor of Political Science.

  • Georgia Loukatou

    Georgia Loukatou

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychology

    BioI am a computational psycholinguist and postdoctoral researcher at the Language and Cognition Lab, Stanford University with Dr. Michael C. Frank. I am working on reverse engineering word learning in diverse languages, focusing on its learning factors and mechanisms. I am interested in new technologies and methods to study language processing and the use of language across contexts.
    I completed my PhD in Cognitive Science at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, Ecole Normale Supérieure under the supervision of Dr. Alex Cristia. My doctoral research addresses issues of cross-linguistic and cross-cultural diversity and learnability in language acquisition.
    My research is at the crossroads of cognitive science, drawing mostly from linguistics and computer science, but also from anthropology and psychology. I follow an interdisciplinary approach, implementing computational modeling, corpus analyses and experimental methods. I am an advocate of open science and science communication.
