Personal profile

Biography

Broadly defined, my research interests are in Language and Cognition. In particular, I am interested in the cognitive and neural aspects of Second Language Processing and Representations. For the last 10 years, I have focused on Chinese-English bilinguals who use their two languages on a regular basis to understand the cognitive mechanisms and architecture of Bilingualism/Multilingualism. I primarily use experimental paradigms (i.e., eye-trackers, ERPs, reaction times tools, etc.) to empirically investigate issues. I welcome students who want to use experimental techniques to work on related research topics to come to talk to me. I primarily teach undergraduate courses: Introduction to Psycholinguistics,  Bilingualism, etc.
