Guillermo Montero Melis
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and at the Department of Linguistics (Stockholm University). I am funded by a 3-year International Postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council to carry out a neurocognitive investistiagion into whether language shapes our concepts (see here).
My research interests more generally lie in the area of psycholinguistics: I am interested in how we represent meaning in language and how those semantic representations relate to the conceptual representations we build of the world. I am also interested in how we acquire semantic representations when we learn a new language.
