Simone De Lemos
LASP Graduate Fellow '19-'21
Simone De Lemos is a PhD candidate in linguistics and a member of the Computational Linguistics Lab. She holds a BS in computer engineering and an MA in linguistics. Simone does research in Prosody, the patterns of rhythm and intonation of language, and in how these interact with meaning and structure. She is interested in understanding in what manner and to which extent machine learning can be used as an ancillary tool to study formal linguistics. Simone works with romance languages and is passionate about the languages and the peoples of Brazil. She works with Bororo—indigenous to Central Brazil—and Talian, brought to Southern Brazil by Italian immigrants in the late XIX century. Simone is also an enthusiastic advocate of linguistic tolerance.
