My research program focuses on Phonology/Phonetics and Second Language Acquisition, more specifically on stress and prosody, and how subtle patterns in language can be acquired by speakers and second language learners. My doctoral thesis explored how syllable weight impacts word stress, and how native speakers acquire and generalize stress patterns present in their language.

I’m the author of Data visualization and analysis in second language research, a book focused on statistical methods applied to second language acquisition data using . Quantitative methods play a central role in my research program, given my interest in subtle linguistic patterns.

I am also involved in two projects as a member of the Second Language Acquisition Group in the Department of Linguistics at McGill: a) high vowel deletion in Québec French (with Natália B. Guzzo and Heather Goad); b) prosodic influence in pronoun interpretation in Italian (with Heather Goad, Lydia White and colleagues).
