Steven R. Foley

Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in the Council of the Humanities and the Program in Linguistics

Steven Foley (Ph.D., UC Santa Cruz, 2020) is a postdoctoral researcher specializing in psycholinguistics. Their research investigates how speakers of morphologically rich languages compute morphosyntactic dependencies during real-time comprehension and then use those inferences to make predictions about upcoming words and sentence structures. This research has brought Steven to Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, where they have conducted a series of reading-time experiments on Georgian, and also Oaxaca, Mexico, where they and collaborators used eye-tracking methods to study an indigenous Zapotec language.
