Welcome

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm an M.A. student in Research and Clinical Psychology at Concordia University, in Montréal, Canada. My research takes place in the Concordia Infant Research lab, directed by Dr. Krista Byers-Heinlein.

My research interests are centered around how bilingual children learn their languages best and which qualities of early bilingual home environments foster better language outcomes. I am currently investigating which bilingual book formats and strategies foster better word-learning.

I am learning R statistical language, and am interested in open, collaborative science. My methods have included live action experiments, focus groups, parent-report questionnaires, and eye-tracking.

I created this website as a home base for the plethora of academic networking platforms out there. I hope it will facilitate sharing materials and make it easier for you, future collaborators and fellow students, to contact me — so do not hesitate to do so. I am also fully bilingual, so feel free to communicate with me en français should you wish!

Warmly,

-Melanie Brouillard
