About

Welcome!  I am a PhD student in the Linguistics program at Boston University.  My primary areas of research interest include multilingualism, adult second and third language acquisition, and multilingual cognition and code-mixing.  I am interested in examining the influence that the languages of a multilingual have on each other in acquisition and cognition, and what factors determine the degree to which each language may play a role in acquiring a new language.

I completed my MA in Applied Linguistics in 2018 at Boston University, where concentrated my research in the acquisition of L3 grammatical gender in beginner German learners.  I completed my BA in Linguistics and Psychology and my BS in Cognitive Science at the University of Connecticut, where I also minored in Music.
