Research Interests: 

I study the development of morphosyntax in first and second language acquisition. I am particularly interested in the comparison between second language acquisition in typically developing children and first language acquisition in children with specific language impairment.

Teaching Interests

I am cross-appointed in the Department of Linguistics and the Department of French & Spanish. I teach classes in linguistics as well as French language courses at both the beginner and advanced levels.
