Mentor: Vardan Arutiunian (Webb Lab)
Xinyue Yu is an undergraduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in linguistics with minors in anthropology, Korean, and Asian Languages & Cultures. Her academic journey has centered around the fascinating fields of neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics. She has gained valuable insights into the connections between language, cognition and the brain through coursework in psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. Xinyue has also served as an undergraduate research assistant in various programs such as the Linguistics Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (LURAP), Neuroplasticity and Language Lab (NLL), and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Language and Learning (NeuDLL) Lab at the University of Washington. She is excited about the opportunity to work with Vardan Arutiunian at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute, where she hopes to deepen her knowledge in language impairment and EEG-related research techniques.
