Bio

Her research is in the field of Second Language Acquisition (SLA). It focuses on the psycholinguistic factors involved in language learning, especially how input (the linguistic data that learners receive) shapes second language (L2) learners' evolving grammar. She is currently working on the role of input in the L2 acquisition of tense and aspect in the classroom and the study abroad environments.
