My research interests lie at the intersection of cognitive neuroscience, language sciences, and linguistics. I am particularly interested in understanding the impact of various life experiences and lifestyle factors on neurocognitive development (across one’s lifespan) and cognitive aging trajectories. To date, my research has primarily focused on exploring the potential implications of bi-/multilingualism on neurocognition in later life, as well as their relevance to clinical neurodegeneration. I employ a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging methods (EEG/MRI/PET) in my work.
I also hold a part-time position at UiT the Arctic University of Norway, where I am affiliated with the AcqVA Aurora research centre and the PoLaR lab. At UiT I am working with Jason Rothman, Vince DeLuca, Jon Andoni Duñabeitia, and Jubin Abutalebi under Research Theme 4 of AcqVA Aurora: MultiLingual Minds and Neurocognitive Adaptations.
