My research covers various aspects and types of bilingualism from children to adults. I am primarily focused on heritage language bilinguals, a particular subtype of bilingual first language learners. My research interests with this group span language (grammatical) development (the process of language acquisition) particularly in later childhood, outcomes of development in young adulthood (the state of grammatical competence achieved) and processing (the real time unfolding of the grammatical system) at all ages along the developmental continuum.
