I am a graduate student in the Joint Cognitive Science & Psychology PhD program at Tufts University. My research interests include first (L1) and second language (L2) visual word processing in bilinguals, models of bilingual processing, and neural changes during the early stages of L2 acquisition. My current projects focus on behavioral and neurophysiological interventions for L2 vocabuary acquisition through the use of event-related potentials (ERPs) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
