PhD Candidate

Concordia University


I am currently a PhD candidate in Psychology at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.

My academic research focuses on language acquisition in bilingual children, particularly how bilingual infants separate their languages. I’m currently involved in projects investigating bilinguals’ phonological perception, parental language mixing, and the potential effects of code-switching on comprehension.

Outside of my research, I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga, travelling, spending time with my dog, and occassionally knitting.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions relating to my research.
