Mother of two incredible bilingual daughters

About me
About me

My research broadly focuses on child bilingualism. I am specifically interested in exploring areas of cross-linguistic influence in semantics, pragmatics, syntax and their interaction among heritage speakers and child L2 learners, and how these areas change over the course of development. As a heritage speaker of Spanish myself, I believe that  increasing our understanding of bilingual development has direct implications for successful academic outcomes, language policy and pedagogy, as well as bilingual and immersion education. In my previous life I was a flamenco dancer in the U.S. and Spain, and then founded a series of original programs for second language acquisition through movement in Madrid called Hello! English. Nowadays, I am Assistant Professor of Bilingual Education and TESOL in the Graduate School of Education at Touro University. My favorite job, though, is raising my two incredible, strong, and bilingual daughters.
