Research Interests:
Informed by the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience and linguistics, her research explores the neurocognitive processess underlying second language learning and how it is modulated by learners' individual cognitive abilities (e.g., working memory). In addition, she is particularly interested in using brain imaging techniques to investigate the interactions between brain regions supporting second language learning and link brain networks with behaviors.
