Jon Rawski

Researcher

Stony Brook University

I am a PhD candidate in the Linguistics Department at Stony Brook University, advised by Jeffrey Heinz. I am also a Graduate Assistant in the Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics, and a Junior Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science.

My work concerns the mathematics of human language and learning. These cognitive feats emerge from humans’ unique neuronal structure and computing power, allowing linguistic insight to contribute to the broader cognitive sciences and artificial intelligence. I frequently use tensor algebra, formal language theory, grammatical inference, differentiable machine learning, and finite model theory to clarify the nature of the human mental capacity of language.
