Research interests

My current research interests focus on the interplay between domain-general skills and language processing. Of particular interest are the nature of language processing across the adult lifespan and the influence of age-related cognitive changes on this development. In my doctoral project, I investigate these phenomena in relation to syntactic processing in mono- and bilingual speakers.
