    Research interests

    Alicia's overall research agenda is informed by the fields of linguistics, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience and focuses on investigating the set of individual factors that contribute to proficient bi / multilingualism as well as on elucidating the ways in which the (becoming) bi / multilingual experience impacts linguistic, socio-affective, and neurocognitive function.

    Her areas of specialization are adult second language acquisition and heritage speaker bilingualism. She also has a secondary specialization in the acquisition and processing of (morpho) syntax using psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic methods.
