March 23, 2019 — SQRP Talk
I presented my first conference talk— in French! — entitled "La lecture partagée auprès des enfants bilingues de cinq ans: Une comparaison de deux formats de livres" ("Shared book reading with bilingual 5-year-olds: A comparison of two book formats") at the Société Québécoise pour la Recherche en Psychologie (SQRP). This invited talk was part of a symposium entitled "Études en psycholinguistique : quand la psychologie rencontre le langage" ("Studies in psycholinguistics: When psychology meets language"). Find my slides here.

January 23, 2019 — The Concordia Infant Research Lab Goes Green
Lately, I've been thinking a lot about ways to make our lab greener. We switched our paper towels for cloth towels, and I brought a compost bin to the lab that now sits in our kitchen area (we're lucky to have bigger compost bins in certain locations at Concordia where I can empty it). I'm currently thinking of ways to reduce our paper usage, perhaps by first tackling the paper back-ups of electronically-completed questionnaires.
If you have any suggestions to help our lab go greener, I'm eager to hear them!
