Lluís Barceló-Coblijn

I have got a bachelor in Catalan philology (2006, University of the Balearic Islands; UIB) and another one in General Linguistics (2007, University of Barcelona; UB). After that, I made a Master in Cognitive Science and Language (2008, UB) and another Master in Human Evolution and Cognition (2010, UIB). My PhD thesis (2012) is on both language evolution in the species H. sapiens and H. neanderthalensis, and language evolution in ontogeny (first language acquisition) analyzed by means of complex networks.

In 2008 I briefly worked for the ICREA-Complex Systems Lab, where, thanks to Bernat Corominas-Murtra, I got in contact with networks, complex systems and language. This was the basis for part of my Ph.D. thesis and the current line of research I’m developing now. I apply Network Science to language acquisition in both typical and atypical (pathological) conditions.
