    Research interests

    I'm interested in language acquisition and language processing by children (L1 and 2L1) and adults (L1, L2, L3). My favourite research paradigms include Visual World eye-tracking, various production and comprehension experiments. I've worked on the acquisition and processing of locative prepositional phrases in early grammars, grammatical case and grammatical aspect (monolingual children and heritage language learners), V2, agreement and definiteness (L2 and L3 learners). The languages I'm primarily working on are Russian (monolingual and heritage), German, Norwegian, English and Spanish.
