Research Interests

My research is centered around language processing, quite often as accomplished by bilinguals. Current areas of interest are L2 syntactic processing and lexical ambiguity, phoneme perception and production. My research methods include the recording of ERPs and eye movements (independently), for both visual and auditory linguistic stimuli. I am also involved in research using fMRI to determine the cortical structures involved in language processing.

The "Parole et Langage"(Speech and Language) laboratory LPL is comprised of researchers from an extended number of fields (phonetics, psycholinguistics, linguistics, mutli-modal communication, pragmatics, prosody, automatic language tagging, among others) which makes for a highly active and productive worksite.

The laboratory is fully equipped, with a professional recording studio for creating auditory materials, an electromagnetic articulograph for speech studies EMMA, a new Eyelink 1000 tower mount eye-tracker EyeLink2, three ERP systems (a 32 channel, a 64 channel and a 256 channel system). Our laboratory is also linked with the fMRI center in Marseille (IRMF).
