Lila San Roque

Research Associate in the Department of Philosophy at Rutgers University. 

She studies grammar, interaction, and culture. Her research focus is on the lexical and grammatical expression of perception and knowledge (e.g., evidential systems, verbs of perception, egophoric markers) and how they are used in conversation and in language socialisation. Her fieldwork is with speakers of the Duna (or Yuna) language, which is spoken in Hela Province (formerly Southern Highlands Province) of Papua New Guinea, towards the western edge of the Highlands evidentiality area.

Program-Specific Researcher in the Department of Philosophy at Kyoto University (starting from 1st September).

He received a PhD in philosophy at Keio University and a postdoc training in cognitive science at The University of Tokyo. His previous job was a research fellow at the University of Brighton (in a Leverhulme Trust project on diagrammatic reasoning). He is studying human thinking and reasoning, by applying theoretical ideas as in logic and philosophy to psychological experiments. He received the Best Paper Award at IEEE-VL/HCC 2015.

Research professor in the Department of Psychology at Korea University.

He studied the language development of children and the understanding of the prosocial behavior of infants for his master's degree at Yonsei University.  For his doctoral degree at Vanderbilt University, he studied various statistical models for analyzing data from psychological and educational research. Now he is interested in methods for analyzing experimental data, including data from functional magnetic resonance imaging.
