Production & Comprehension
of linguistic structures
I’m a psycholinguist studying language processing: how speakers express messages and listeners comprehend them.
I’m especially interested in the ways processing pressures and linguistic knowledge interact in determining structural choices in production and decisions about the integration of incoming input during comprehension.
I run behavioral experiments in the lab and on the internet using offline and online measures.
My current research is focused on the processing of long distance linking relationships (such as filler-gap dependencies) within and across grammars; strategic structural encoding in language production; and the flexibility of the language control system across bilingual populations.
