self-descriptionWhile I majored in mathematics and Russian in college (Haverford College, Pennsylvania), I was always somewhat interested in linguistics, due to my multi-lingual background and pleasure in comparing languages. Learning Russian really made me start thinking about the intimate connection between language and culture, and I started reflecting on how language structure (grammar, syntax) reflects people's mentality and way of thinking. I realized I wanted to dwell further in this area of research, and applied to the Cogmaster program in Paris for next year. Since my formal linguistics background is quite limited, I thought a summer school would be the perfect place to reinforce my basic knowledge in linguistics, while being among people who have similar interests than me.
