Sahil Luthra


(That’s pronounced ˈsa hɪl, for any linguists out there.)

I am currently a PhD student in the Language and Cognition program at the University of Connecticut, where I am co-advised by Dr. Jim Magnuson and Dr. Emily Myers. Currently, I am an IGERT fellow in the Neurobiology of Language program as well as an affiliate of the Connecticut Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences. Starting in the fall of 2018, I will be supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and will also be a trainee in UConn’s Science of Learning and Art of Communication (SLAC) program.

Prior to starting UConn, I was at Brown University, where I worked with Sheila Blumstein in the Brown Speech Lab. I received a B.S. in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2014 and then worked as a full-time research assistant until 2016.
