Scientific Advisory Board

International scholars who are specialists in multilingualism in childhood, adolescence, adulthood and aging comprise MultiLing’s Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).

Each member of the SAB is an internationally acclaimed scholar in his/her respective field of research in multilingualism. While each scholar has a specialization in a field more closely related to either psycholinguistics or sociolinguistics, a range of backgrounds is represented, also geographically. The core research team and the SAB contribute to a truly multi- and interdisciplinary Center. The SAB serves an advisory function.
