My main research interests lie in second language processing and learning, and in exploring the connection between input properties, processing and learning outcomes. I approach these questions by using electrophysiology (ERPs) and eye-tracking. Some of my recent work focused on understanding the cognitive mechanisms involved in processing and learning multi-word units (i.e., conventional expressions). In my current work, I explore a "desirable difficulties" approach to second language learning. In a related line of research, I investigate how non-native speakers generalize what they learn in a new language.
