Nate Delaney-Busch, Ph.D. (2009-2015)
Dept. Psychology, Tufts University
I joined the Kuperberg Lab in 2009 as a PhD student. My primary areas of emphasis have been language, emotion, and schizophrenia, and I have a strong interest in data science and statistics. I am particularly interested in how the meaning of an utterance, particularly personally or emotionally significant meaning, is derived from the interface between word semantics, local and global context, and personal experience. Using ERP, MRI, and behavioral methodologies, I have explored how each of these three (the particulars of the person, the place, and the thing) contribute to the process of comprehension. I am now a Data Scientist at Q-State Biosciences.
