My area of expertise is psycholinguistics. My particular approach is to seek converging evidence from language comprehension and language production, with the ultimate goal of relating these data to specific brain processes. My current research focuses on language learning, specifically the training and learning of non-native language contrasts. I teach a variety of courses in language and mind, psychology of language, second language acquisition, and research methods.
