Research Interests

I adopt an interdisciplinary approach to study normative and nonnormative aspects of language processing at different levels of linguistic analysis (phonetic, lexical, morphosyntactic). Using behavioral, eye-tracking, and neurophysiological methods, I am interested in identifying where and why break-downs in real-time language processing occur, as well as in elucidating the mechanisms that allow language users of nonnormative populations (bilinguals, young children, individuals with language impairment) to overcome such difficulties.
