Research Interests

My research interest is to better understand the relationship between bilingualism and executive functioning among children with and without neurodevelopmental conditions. My current research focuses on characterizing multilingualism in children from a multilingual community. Given the impact of language experience on myriad areas of child development (e.g., cognitive, social, and neural processes), I hope to investigate effective ways to capture language experiences of children that consider contexts of home, school and the community.

Keywords: Bilingualism, multilingualism, cognition, executive functioning, contextual factors
