Areas of Interest:

My research program can be broadly categorized into two main areas: (a) bilingual language processing, and (b) the representation of emotion and emotion concepts. In general, my program of research is directed toward uncovering the ways in which bilingual speakers learn, store, and use language information. The thrust of my research program in bilingual memory can be summarized under two main aims: (1) the application of bilingual paradigms in solving issues of general language processing, and (2) the investigation of the structure and function of bilingual memory.
