Ten Stony Brook Students Awarded Prestigious NSF-GRFP Fellowships

Kenneth hansonKenneth Hanson

Hometown: Novi, Michigan
Major: Linguistics
Research Advisor: Thomas Graf

Hanson’s research focuses on the mathematical properties of the grammars of human languages. An explicitly mathematical perspective makes it easier to abstract away from trivial differences and understand the kinds of patterns attested across languages, and across different components of the grammar, such as syntax (sentence structure) and phonology (sound structure). This knowledge in turn informs research on how languages can be learned and used, whether by people or machines.

Hanson received a Stony Brook University Graduate Council Fellowship (2020).
