Research Interests

My research interests broadly include second language acquisition and bilingualism, especially theories and methodologies that are on the mathematically and/or computationally heavy side. At the moment, I am focusing on decoding the representation content of the neural code by combining computational techniques, corpus linguistics, and fMRI to better understand potentially subtle differences in representation such as but not limited to the differences between a concept in two languages, the representational architecture of expert and beginner knowledge, and the graphical properties (functional connectivity) of different classes and categories of words.
