The summer is flying by! For most of July, I am hanging out in Davis, California, to teach a course on the Bilingual Brain with Loraine Obler at the Linguistic Society of America Summer Institute. I have found Davis to be absolutely charming, and my daily runs along the Arboretum trail have been a special treat.


We cover a lot of ground in the course, but there is so much great research out there on bilingualism and the brain that we only barely scratch the surface in each class. The students in our class are mostly graduate students and advanced undergraduates, with a few faculty drop-ins as well. I’m really enjoying getting to know them and learning what their interests are in the field of neurolinguistics.

If you’re at the institute, please say hi!


Moved to UC Riverside!


I just started a postdoctoral fellowship at UC Riverside! I’m working in the Psychology program with Judith Kroll and also with Deborah Burke at Pomona College to study language production in bilingual older adults. I’m very excited about all the projects going on in the lab and look forward to many interesting conversations and collaborations. More details to come!
