Open to PhD supervision enquiries?


Areas of interest for supervision

I am happy to supervise PhD projects on the development of morphosyntax and the lexicon in bilingual children with typical development and with developmental language disorders. I am keen to explore the implementation of novel methods such as eye tracking in this field. Please also see my list of publications for an idea about my research interests.

Current PhD students supervised

  • Katerina Pantoula (Lead)
  • Qingyuan Gardner
  • Yu-Hui Liao
  • Diana Lopez lugo
  • Kate Repnik


  • I am also currently supervising the following PhD project in collaboration with colleagues from Bangor:

    Athanasia Papastergiou. Language and cognitive abilities of Welsh-English bilingual children attending different educational programmes in Wales. ESRC-funded PhD studentship in Bilingualism (co-supervision with Dr. Eirini Sanoudaki & Dr. Enlli Thomas, Bangor University). Start September 2014.

Past PhD students supervised

Anne-Dorothee Roesch (2014). Comprehension and production of wh-questions in typically developing 2L1 and L2 French-German children with and without language impairment. Bangor University.

Current research interests

My research focuses on cross-linguistic aspects of acquisition and processing in typically-developing monolingual and bilingual children and in children with language impairment. My research addresses questions such as the following: What is the relationship between production and (on-line) comprehension/processing in impaired and unimpaired monolingual and bilingual children? How is this relationship affected by cross-linguistic differences in the target grammatical system? How can the comparison between different modalities inform us about the underlying nature of development and processing? I am also interested in the interplay between cognitive abilities, such as executive functions, and language abilities in typically-developing and language impaired children. If you are interested in pursuing a PhD on these or similar topics, please e-mail me. For more details, please visit my Academia website:
