Sergey Kornilov (PhD in Psychology, 2014), will be awarded an Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award from the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD), for his “unusually noteworthy” dissertation, “Neurophysiological and Genetic Bases of Developmental Language Disorder”, supervised by Jim Magnuson, Nicole Landi (both of UConn Psychology and Haskins Labs) and Elena Grigorenko (of the Yale Child Study Center). SRCD is an international organization devoted to promoting multidisciplinary research and the exchange of ideas in human development. Dr. Kornilov is continuing and extending this work as a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University and St. Petersburg State University (Russia). Kudos, Sergey!
