I am a linguist currently working as a post-doctoral research assistant on the Q-BEx project. My previous research focused on bilingualism, cognitive skills (executive functions and the Theory of Mind), figurative language (idioms and metaphors), autistic-like traits, and autism spectrum disorders. My other areas of interest include code-switching, pragmatic language development, language impairment, and language processing.
