Nina Feygl Semushina

I am a PhD candidate and graduate student in linguistics at UCSD. I work at Rachel Mayberry Lab for Multimodal Language Development . My primary research interests are sign languages, language evolution, the relationship between language and number, and the impact of delayed language exposure on the adult's language abilities.

In my dissertation I study the effects of language deprivation on the acquisition of numeracy and linguistic number use in American Sign Language. Besides that, I work on Russian Sign Language morphology.

I am also affiliated with the UCSD program of research and training in anthropogeny - CARTA.
