My research interests lie in the second language acquisition of syntax-morphology (tense-aspect-mood/modality, grammatical gender) and French linguistics from a generative/minimalist perspective. I am particularly interested in the psycholinguistic processes which underlie the acquisition of languages past the age of puberty, as well as web-based and computerized experimental research.
