Professor Louise Connell

Research overview

I am a Professorial Research Fellow in Maynooth University, Ireland, and hold a Visiting Researcher position in Lancaster University.  I am currently Principal Investigator on a €2 million research grant from the European Research Council on the role of language in complex cognition that I run across both institutions. 

My research interests surround cognitive science and embodied cognition.  Specifically, I'm interested in how mental representations and conceptual knowledge are grounded, how we access and use these representations in language, and how we can create computational models to better understand human cognitive behaviour.  I use a range of interdisciplinary methods from experimental psychology and cognitive modelling to corpus linguistics and machine learning.
