Viridiana L. Benitez


I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Infant Learning Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I study how attention, learning, and language experience affect how infants, children, and adults learn words, track statistical patterns, and learn to attend.

I am also a visiting scholar in the Chican@ and Latin@ Studies Program at UW-Madison and am deeply invested in diversifying academia and supporting underrepresented students in the sciences.
