Current Research

My research addresses questions in language production and memory for language.

In my work on language production, I focus on incrementality and flexibility in message and sentence formulation. For example, when describing a simple event, how do speakers "plan" what to say and how to say it? How are message-level and sentence-level processes shaped by learning? I approach these questions by studying how speakers plan messages and sentences of varying complexity and in different languages.

In my work on memory for language, I examine native and non-native speakers' memory for simple sentences. Bridging the gap between research on bilingual sentence processing and reconstructive memory, I examine how the process of learning a language changes how we remember information presented in this language.
