Research interests

My research interests focus on language acquisition, especially on bilingual first language acquistion and second langage acquisition, with a particular interest in French and English languages and the isssue of ultimate attainment in second language acquisition.

My current research project looks into the interpretation of aspect and mood contrats in French by adult English native speakers. The research explores issues in Second Language Acqusition (SLA) such as ultimate attainment, the Critical Period Hypothesis and also the Interface Hypothesis.
