Welcome

Thanks for stopping by!

I study Research and Clinical Psychology at Concordia University, in Montréal, Canada, at the Master's level. 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 characteristic 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,
