Lillian Griffin

Undergraduate Student: Microbiology and Spanish


My name is Lillian Griffin and I am a sophomore at Penn State, University Park, studying microbiology and Spanish. Language has always been so fascinating to me as it affects every part of every one’s life and there is so much we do not know about yet!

Project Summary:

As a PIRE fellow during the summer of 2021, I am working with the University of Granada to study the impact of bilingualism on the memory of conversation, specifically focusing on Spanish-English bilinguals. I am hoping to gain insight into how well conversations in one’s first or second language is remembered and how this can impact everyday applications.
