My research focuses on the developmental processes that contribute to language acquisition and use. My current research interests include (i) the acquisition and processing of syntax, (ii) the neurocognitive mechanisms that support syntax acquisition and use (e.g., memory, statistical learning), (iii) the role of socio-cognitive processes such as symbolic play in language acquisition, and (iv) individual differences in language acquisition and language processing. Much of my research has an explicit cross-linguistic focus. With my colleagues I have conducted research on a number of languages, including English, German, Italian, Persian, Spanish, Finnish, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Qaqet (Baining, PNG).
