Dr. Stark gave an informal presentation on her work at the inaugural 2019-2010 lecture series hosted by the Center of Excellence for Women & Technology (CEW&T) at Indiana University in September, 2019. This talk was followed by networking with faculty and PhD students.
Dr. Stark recently attended the Society for the Neurobiology of Language Conference, held in Helsinki, Finland. This is a fantastic conference that draws students, early career scientists and established scientists from the disciplines of linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience and psychology. It is a welcoming place, where established scientists present posters alongside students and developing scientists, which makes for productive networking experiences as well as fosters scientific growth. We also celebrated the launch of the Society’s new Open Access journal, the Neurobiology of Language, hosted by MIT Press.
Brielle Stark and Manaswita Dutta (PhD student) made their way to the 49th Clinical Aphasiology Conference, hosted in lovely Whitefish, Montana. Manaswita was a NIDCD fellow, meaning that she took part in several career development opportunities during the course of the conference. Her abstract (see below), which was for a roundtable discussion, was one of the highest rated abstracts at the conference.
