Carla Contemori
Assistant Professor, Languages and Linguistics - Psychology - Sociology and Anthropology

Dr. Contemori completed her PhD in Cognitive Science at the University of Siena (Italy) in 2011. She is currently an Assistant Professor in Linguistics at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP, USA). Before joining the department of Languages and Linguistics at UTEP in 2015, Dr. Contemori worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Language Science, Pennsylvania State University (PA, USA; 2012-2015), and at the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading (UK; 2011-2012), with a grant from the Fondazione De Vincenzi (Italy).
Prior to joining UTEP, Dr. Contemori had the opportunity to supplement her background in linguistics with expertise on second language acquisition and experimental methods for psycholinguistics research at the Pennsylvania State University and at the University of Reading. In her present day research, Dr. Contemori uses a variety of experimental techniques (off-line comprehension and production, self-paced reading and listening, eye-tracking, syntactic priming,) with adults and children to investigate the underlying nature of second language development and processing.
