    Research interests

    I am interested in multilingual language acquisition as well as psycholinguistics more generally. In addition, I am enthusiastic about methodological and statistical developments such as testing informative hypotheses and research synthesis.

    Current projects

    I am currently conducting my PhD research within the MultiCUE project. My PhD research focuses on the pragmatic abilities of multilingual children, and specifically on their attention to non-verbal cues during communication, such as a speaker's eye gaze and co-speech gestures. I investigate whether their attention to such cues differ from that of monolingual peers, and what the mechanisms are that underlie such differences.

    My supervisors are:

    • First Language Acquisition (BA Linguistics)


    • Specialization Linguistics: Multilingualism and Second Language Acquisition (BA Linguistics)
    • First Year Group Project (BA Linguistics)
