We have the pleasure to announce that Natalie Brito will be in our lab doing a one month stage.
 
Natalie is a PhD student in the Human Development and Public Policy program at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Virgina in 2005 and her Master´s degree from the College of William and Mary in 2008.
 
Her research focuses on the development of memory during the first three years of life, specifically examining memory specificity and flexibility. Her dissertation examines the differences in memory generalization between monolingual and bilingual infants from 6-months to 30-months of age.
 
She is visiting our lab in order to collaborate on a project focused on examining if language type (English-Spanish vs Catalan-Spanish) has any influence on memory generalization at 18-months of age.
