Research Information:

My research investigates how acquiring a second language affects a person's processing in the first language. I have combined methods of behaviour and neuroimaging to show that bilinguals are (subconsciously) more sensitive to sentential information to more efficiently disambiguate a word's meaning.

Areas of Expertise:

Language Preference:

French and English
