Maria Cruz Martin Garcia



Postdoctoral Fellow



I received my PhD in Psychology at the University of Granada (Spain) in 2011. After finishing my PhD, I got a postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Granada at the Department of Experimental Psychology. My research interests focus on cognitive control processes involved in language selection in different bilingual populations. Specifically, I am interested in exploring some aspects related to language control, like the time course of inhibition. At the Center for Language Science, I am developing a research project investigating cognitive control and inhibitory mechanisms in bilingual production.
