I am a sophomore at Penn State University. I grew up in Iowa City, Iowa and now my family resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I grew up in a bilingual household and have always had an interest in psychology and language. I have been working in Dr. Van Hell's Bilingualism and Language Development lab for almost a year and hope to one day have a career in Psychology or Law.
I will be conducting a behavioral study on Spanish-English bilinguals in Granada, Spain. My participants will be non-habitual second language speakers and I will test how long they take to notice code-switches from their dominant to secondary language and vice versa.
