Research Interests

My research interests are in second language acquisition and theoretical and experimental syntax. I currently focuss on combining linguistic and computational modeling of learner trajectories in big learner corpora with emphasis on the impact of native language on second language. I am one of the people who set up and run  the Cambridge Bilingualism Network, a public engagement initiative promoting the linguistic and cognitive advantages of bilingualism and Editor of Languages, Society and Policy (LSP), a journal aiming to connect research in linguistics and languages with policy making.
