My interests are always developing. Currently my primary areas of research are in: language attrition and relearning, concept and category formation, bilingualism, computational modeling.
Current Lab Members
I am interested in cognitive and brain mechanisms of language acquisition. My current research interests include cognitive neuroscience of bilingualism and second language learning, computational modeling of language processing and representation, and neurocognitive and genetic bases of individual differences.
I received my M.S. and B.S. in neuroscience from Tulane University. My research interests are in cognitive neuroscience with a concentration in bilingual language acquisition and processing. I am also very interested in studying learning and memory, specializing in studying the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease as well as language processing in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I am currently working with neuroimaging techinques such as fMRI and DTI, but am always interested in learning new methodologies.
