Research Interests:
I am interested in within and cross-language semantic conceptual representation and in the interplay between executive control, bilingualism and second language learning. In recent and ongoing projects my students and I are examining factors influencing translation choice in behavioral tasks and in large language corpora; the implications of grammatical class for meaning representation and bilingual performance; the detailed nature of executive control advantages accrued by bilinguals, with specific emphasis on cognitive flexibility; and how individual differences in executive control and cognitive flexibility might further our understanding of the variability in second language learning outcomes.
