Goodbye and good luck to Einat Shetreet, who, after 2 years as a post-doc in the Kuperberg lab, accepted a faculty position in the Deparment of Linguistics and Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University, Israel. During her time in the Kuperberg lab, Einat worked on discourse processing, examining the effects of discourse cues on word prediction, as well as mappings between real world events and language. Thank you to Einat for all her hard work!
