Professional Bio

My name is Gwendolyn Rehrig (pronouns: she/her), and I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Fernanda Ferreira in the Ferreira Lab at the University of California, Davis. I study language processing and vision-language interactions.

I completed my doctoral work in psycholinguistics at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, advised by Karin Stromswold, and I hold a certificate in cognitive science from the Rutgers University Center for Cognitive Science (RUCCS).

I recently started a podcast called Manuscripted to make my publications more accessible. Using the podcast, I will gradually record and release audio-friendly versions of my published work.

You can listen to Manuscripted on Spotify:

In my spare time, I play video games and tabletop games. Some of my favorite video games are The Witcher 3, Skyrim, Torchlight 2, and the Animal Crossing series. My favorite tabletop games include Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Gloomhaven, and Dungeons and Dragons (I play 5e).

I also enjoy singing and I play acoustic guitar. I tend to do them simultaneously, and sometimes it even sounds ok (though my neighbor might disagree).
