My main area of research interest is bi- and multilingualism. More specifically: bi- and multilingual acquisition, 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 of a multilingual play a role, with the use of models from the generative, cognitive, and psycholinguistic views. Below are a few examples of my written work:
In my MA project, I investigated L3 acquisition of grammatical gender in German by sequential Spanish-English bilinguals.
- Recently I have worked on a project proposal as the final project for a graduate class on bilingualism.
- I conducted an independent research project for my undergraduate honors thesis at the University of Connecticut.
