Research Interests:
My students and I study second and foreign language learning, interactions between first and additional language systems, Individual differences in language learning and the domain general vs. specific bases of language processing.

Our aim is to better characterize and understand the interactions between two languages (or more) in a single neural and cognitive system, and to contribute to the effort to identify the underlying mechanisms leading to individual differences in language learning and processing. Our goal is for this research to foster the development of effective instruction and intervention programs in the domain of foreign language, and programs targeted at minority language students in mainstream education.
