Yaminah is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S. in Psychology. Before joining the Communication Neuroscience Research Lab, she worked in the CMU Infant Language and Learning Lab, studying language acquisition and development in infants and toddlers. Her research interests focus on the effects of different language and cultural backgrounds on language and auditory processing, and how these differences affect neural systems. Outside of the lab, she is most likely baking, in the gym, binge watching Netflix, or traveling with friends and family.
