Research Interests – My first research interest is the interactions between language and other higher order cognitive processes (i.e., working memory, cognitive control). My second research interest focuses on how individual differences interplay with bilingualism. Furthermore, I want to utilize multiple methods to investigate the cognitive mechanisms underlying various psychological phenomena.
