Research interests

My research focuses on two main topics: the acquisition of a third or further language by bilinguals of different types (sequential ─ early and late ─, simultaneous, etc.), and the processing of morphology and morphosyntax by non-native speakers of a language. I have worked with speakers of Basque, Polish, Russian, Norwegian, English and Spanish, although the last two are by far the populations I know best.

Teaching

While my post does not include teaching, I occassionally substitute my colleagues when they are away. I particularly enjoy teaching second and third language acquisition as well as psycholinguistics courses.
