A bit about Julian Pine

I am a Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Liverpool. My research focuses on how children learn grammar and morphology in different languages, and on using computer models to understand how differences in the pattern of errors shown by children learning different languages are related to the characteristics of the language that they are learning. 

My Role in LuCiD

I am the Director for phase 2 of LuCiD. I oversee the Beyond 0-5: From oral language to literacy research stream and lead a work package on modelling the cross-linguistic pattern of verb-marking deficits in children with DLD.

I was the Deputy Director for phase 1 of LuCiD. I oversaw research under the Knowledge Theme. I led on a project looking at distributional learning and the development of word class categories in English, German and Dutch and supervised Charleen List's LuCiD-funded PhD on verb-marking errors in English- and German-speaking children with Developmental Language Disorder.
