My major interests lie in bilingual competence and education, focusing in two areas of psycholinguistics: 1) bilingual processing and acquisition, e.g., bilingual mental lexicon, language transfer, language and cognitive control. 2) psycholinguistic study of interpreting (with related topics in language teaching and learning). I believe that interpreting, the most demanding task in foreign language learning, is a typical task of bilingual processing and may provide a way to push traditional topics of bilingualism to new frontiers.
