Research Interests:

My general research interests are in the interaction between language and cognition in terms of brain structure and function. The goals of my research are to use a multi-method cognitive neuroscience approach to examine questions about how language experience influences: (1) language processing in both a native and non-native language; (2) executive function and cognitive processes more generally; and (3) age-related changes in language processing, communication, and cognitive function.
