Dr. Hae In (Lauren) Park is an assistant professor of TESOL and second language acquisition in the Department of Educational Theory & Practice. She works in the areas of bilingualism and cognition, conceptual transfer, experimental psycholinguistics, and adult second/third language acquisition. The main questions that guide her research concern (a) how learning an additional language changes human cognition; and (b) to what extent L2 users rely on their L1-mediated cognition when using an L2. She has worked independently and collaboratively on a variety of projects examining the issues of bilingual cognition, conceptual transfer, L2 syntactic priming, and transfer in L3 acquisition.


In the academic year of 2016-2017, she is teaching ETAP501 The Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages and ETAP 536 Second Language Learning. She is also the organizer of the SLA reading group Trends in SLA, which meets bi-weekly to discuss current research trends in the field of SLA and bilingualism.
