Dr. Wang's research program aims to shed light on how previous linguistic experience can impact future learning. Dr. Wang approaches language learning not as an isolated task of simply acquiring new pieces of information, but as the process of integrating already existing language experience with novel sounds, words, concepts, and written words. Because of this perspective, her work intersects with research on perceptual development, memory process, second language learning, and developmental neuroscience.
