My research focuses on early language acquisition. I conduct behavioral and neuroimaging studies in infants, toddlers, as well as non-human animals.

Main topics of interest

Monolingual and Bilingual early language acquisition: 0 to 16 months

Speech processing at birth

Comparative speech processing

Social interactions and language acquisition

Facial imitation at birth

The early contribution of social interaction contexts to language acquisition: shared reading, play, screens, etc.
