  • Louis Van Steene

    Louis Van Steene, Webmaster

    University of Cambridge

    Louis is a third-year linguistics student at Magdalene College, Cambridge, originally from Hertfordshire. After trying to learn a range of languages with highly variable success over the years, from Icelandic to Japanese, his interest in linguistics initially grew as a way to tie them all together. A Platonist at heart, his current interests primarily lie in formal syntax and phonology and their applications. Further intellectual pursuits span the philosophical and the psychological, but when not studying or learning languages, he enjoys literature, music and lists without Oxford commas.
