Who works here?

The CLE is comprised of several core members of staff, researchers on a variety of externally funded projects, PhD students supervised within the Centre, and Masters students on the MSc programme in Evolution of Language and Cognition. In addition, we have associate members who are involved in collaborative research both within the University of Edinburgh and elsewhere.

The current Director of the Centre is Jennifer Culbertson.
