Hi! My name is Sherry Yong Chen, and I am an ABD (all but dissertation) PhD candidate at MIT Linguistics. I also serve as a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Fellow for MIT Graduate Student Council.
As a linguist……
I work primarily on semantics, pragmatics, and their interfaces, involving theoretical as well as experimental inquiries.
In my dissertation, I investigate the non-uniformity of presupposition projection in conditionals, drawing empirical data from adult language comprehension and child acquisition.
I also have experiences in NLP, computational linguistics, and data analytics.
