Areas of interest

  • Psycholinguistics, in particular sentence and discourse comprehension and morphological processing
  • Memory retrieval during language comprehension
  • First and second language acquisition
  • Multilingualism.

My main research focus at the moment investigates the working memory operations that subserve successful language comprehension.

Recent advances in our understanding of the memory encoding and retrieval mechanisms that support language processing have greatly increased our understanding of the difficulties that may be observed during language comprehension in different populations of speakers.

Much of my work investigates these issues from the perspective of monolingual and bilingual language comprehension.
