I am currently a PhD student at the University of Western Ontario, working under the supervision of Dr. Marc Joanisse in the Language, Reading, and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory.

The primary goal of my research is to characterize the functional and structural neural substrates of second language acquisition and processing, specifically how they relate to proficiency and age of acquisition. To answer my research questions, I use several techniques including fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and event-related potentials.
