  • working memory constraints in second language processing
  • generative second language acquisition
  • similarity-based interference

Biography

My primary research interest is to investigate the way near-native second language learners comprehend syntactically complex structures, with a focus on understanding cognitive resource limitations that constrain their parsing. Currently, I am also learning about more advanced topics in Statistics, including maximum likelihood estimation and Bayesian approaches to analysing data.
