Research Interests

Learner grammars with emphasis on L2 acquisition of English, typologies of English L2 grammars based on L1 effects, natural language syntax and its interfaces with phonology, interpretation and processing, linguistic theory and gradience.

I am interested in employing psycholinguistic methodology and techniques from computational linguistics to investigate linguistic questions with specific interests in the following areas

  • experimental syntax
  • learner corpora and data-driven approaches to their investigation.


  • Second language acquisition
  • Syntax
