Profile Detail

Phillip Hamrick

Assistant Professor
Phillip Hamrick (PhD, Georgetown University, 2013) is an assistant professor and principal investigator of the Language and Cognition Research Laboratory. In the LCR Lab, Dr. Hamrick conducts experimental research on how languages are learned and what roles general cognitive capacities (e.g., memory, awareness, perception, attention) play in the learning process. He also conducts meta-research on quantitative research methods themselves, with the aim to improve the validity and reliability of behavioral measures of language learning, awareness, and memory. His research has appeared in numerous edited volumes and journals, including the Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology and Language Learning.
