Current Projects:

  • Simple composition in the bilingual mind:

    I am currently investigating whether the neurobiological mechanisms involved when bilinguals compose simple sentences exhibit different activation patterns when using one language versus two languages (i.e. code-switching). Using magnetoencephalography (MEG), this study will attempt to bridge a connection in the neuroscience literature between what we know about linguistic composition and the bilingual brain.
