Current Projects:

  • Code-switching and the developing bilingual (in development):
    This eye-tracking study will investigate the how children are able to process single-language and code-switched utterances, teasing apart whether grammatical structures impose processing costs for the developing child.
  • Simple composition in the bilingual mind (currently running):

    This magnetoencephalography (MEG) study attempts to describe the neurobiological mechanisms involved when bilinguals compose simple sentences exhibit different activation patterns when using one language versus two languages (i.e. code-switching).
