"One of UCL's great strengths is the way in which excellence in research feeds into excellence in teaching and vice versa."

Dr Simon Banks, Department of Chemistry

An example of Dr Perovic's collaborative approach to research

Dr Perovic works on a mixture of short-term and long-term projects. A recent small scale project was entitled Grammar in a French/English Bilingual Child with Williams syndrome (2013-2014).

It was the first time a study of a bilingual child with this condition had ever been attempted, and it was made possible by the involvement of a fourth-year undergraduate who was a French-native speaker.

It was a time-consuming process. Since the study was novel, the student needed help in identifying areas of research as well as obtaining testing materials in French. However, the study was a success. 

The student presented at the First UCL Brain Sciences Undergraduate Conference and won first prize. The findings are due to be written for publication this year.
