My name is Sherry Yong Chen, and I am an ABD (all but dissertation) PhD candidate at MIT Linguistics.
In my dissertation, I investigate the non-uniformity of presupposition projection in two-place connectives, drawing empirical data from adult language comprehension and child language acquisition. The research is supported by an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (Award #2140399)
As a linguist, I work primarily on semantics, pragmatics, and their interfaces, involving theoretical as well as experimental inquiries.
I also have industrial experiences in NLP, computational linguistics, and data analytics.
