Klinton BicknellAssistant Professor
Klinton Bicknell is Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern University, affiliated with the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science programs. He received his B.A. in Linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley, his M.A. in Linguistics from the University of California, San Diego, and his Ph.D. in Linguistics and Cognitive Science also from the University of California, San Diego. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, San Diego and then in the Department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester prior to coming to Northwestern. He directs the Language and Computation Lab, which studies how the human brain solves the computational problems of language comprehension, production, and acquisition. Methodologically, his work uses techniques from machine learning, computational linguistics, and statistics to build computational models of language behaviors and to analyze large behavioral and neuroscientific datasets, as well as various experimental techniques for data collection, especially eye tracking and crowdsourcing.
