Ava Creemers

I am a fourth year PhD student in the Linguistics Department at The University of Pennsylvania. My primary research interests are in morphology and psycholinguistics. My advisor is David Embick.

My dissertation research focusses on the role of morphological structure in the processing of morphologically complex words, and the extent to which morphological processing is constrained by factors such as semantic transparency. I successfully defended my proposal, titled Morphological processing and the effects of semantic transparency, in December 2018.

My research is carried out in The Embick Lab (Experimental Study of Morphological Structure and Lexical Access).

Before coming to Penn, I studied at the University of Amsterdam where I earned my BA in Dutch Language and Culture and my MA in Linguistics.

During the 2018-2019 academic year, I am a CTL Graduate Fellow at the Center for Teaching and Learning.
