My name is Ellie Murphy and I was an undergraduate student studying communication sciences and disorders with a Spanish minor. I was excited to get involved in research at Iowa and learn more about the techniques involved with the Psycholingustics Lab. I have always been interested with all aspects of language and by the way in which we interpret the world around us through auditory and visual input. I hope that I will be able to better understand the many areas in which these skills are acquired by young children in their developmental years. Outside of the classroom, you can find me spending time with friends, exploring downtown Iowa city and going to spin and yoga classes at the recreation center.
