She also has a secondary specialization in the acquisition and processing of syntax and morphosyntax using psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic methods.

Alicia's research, informed by the fields of linguistics, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience, focuses on investigating the set of individual factors that contribute to successful adult second language development and proficient bi/multilingualism as well as on elucidating the ways in which the (becoming) bi/multilingual experience changes linguistic, cognitive, and neural function.
