My main research interest is multilingualism. With neurophysiological methods, I test the impact of the environment on the ease with which multilinguals switch between their languages. During their everyday conversations, multilinguals can employ each language to different degrees. This can, for example, depend on whom multilinguals are speaking to. How does the brain adjust to these different language environments to achieve successful communication? Not only do bilingual conversations occur in different situations, but other activities unrelated to language also occur in various situations (e.g., driving on a highway or downtown). Is the neural plasticity during bilingual conversations an example of domain-general abilities or a different language-specific ability?

Działalność dydaktyczna

I will teach advanced research methods and experimental design in neuroscience and psycholinguistics in the Cognitive Science Master. I am also interested in working with undergraduate and graduate students, who are interested in research into bilingualism/multilingualism and cognition.
