Research interests

My research interests focus on the social and cognitive aspects of bilingualism, although I also maintain an interest in executive functioning research. My scholarship interests focus on open pedagogy and research methods, particularly in regard to teaching related to the replication crisis and how we can implement open research practices into scholarship.
