Research

My research focuses on how children learn to make inferences about what people mean when they communicate, and the role that social cognition plays in that- their pragmatic development. In my PhD I concentrated on the acquisition of implicatures in young children. I am also interested in how this research can be applied to inference teaching in the classroom. I am involved with the Cambridge Bilingualism Network and have focussed on the interaction between multilingualism and wellbeing.
