Dr Napoleon Katsos
Dr Napoleon Katsos is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
I am interested in how developmental research can inform theoretical linguistic inquiry and vice versa. My particular focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, and in language learning by monolingual and bilingual children as well as children with Specific Language Impairment and/or Autistic Disorders.
