Current Projects

In my teaching and research, the focus lies on linguistic theory building. What do people know about language, and how is this knowledge acquired? I approach such questions mainly by studying data from bilingual and second language acquisition, often obtained in international school contexts. I am particularly interested in: syntax and morphology, interlanguage representations, bilingual and multilingual development (specially age trajectories and literacy).
