Welcome! Thank you for stopping by.

What I do:

I study the nature of language knowledge. What does it mean to know a language? How do we achieve this formidable task? What cognitive abilities do we rely on when we learn and use language? To address these questions, I rely on psycholinguistic experimentation and various types of language tests. 

I am particularly interested in adults learning and using a second language, but I collect both first and second language data from a range of ages.

My research focuses on three specific aspects of language knowledge:

- morphology (processing and awareness)
- lexical knowledge
- reading ability 

Where I do it:

I currently hold the position of A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Modern Languages at Carnegie Mellon University, where I conduct research and teach in the Ph.D. and M.A. programs in Second Language Acquisition. [Link
