Viorica Marian may be known for a viral tweet, but she’s also a psycholinguist, cognitive scientist and the Ralph and Jean Sundin Endowed Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University’s School of Communication. There she conducts research on bilingualism/multilingualism and the consequences of knowing more than one language for the human linguistic, cognitive, and neural architectures.
