Professor Galina Paramei speaks at University of California Irvine conference

Guardian Good University Guide banner

The Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at the University of California Irvine (UCI) invited Professor Galina Paramei to present at the conference Formal Modeling and Analysis of Color Categorization: Innovations and Insights since Berlin and Kay.

Nearly 50 years since the publication of the Berlin and Kay (1969), a book on universality and evolution of basic colour terms – which is the most influential work in the area - the conference highlighted the significant research progress made using computational approaches and mathematically-based cross-linguistic comparison of shared colour naming systems.  

The conference drew from a highly interdisciplinary group of top-tier modelers and researchers, who are actively working in the area of colour naming and categorisation.

During her visit Professor Paramei was also invited to develop and participate in a UCI interdisciplinary cooperation project, which aims to model individual colour vision differences determined by the inherited factors.
