Bilingualism and the Brain with Dr. Arturo Hernández (University of Houston, USA)

I had the incredible opportunity to interview Dr. Arturo Hernández while we both attended the 1st HabilNet Symposium in La Hulpe (Belgium) in May 2018 to learn more about bilingualism and the brain. From there a fascinating conversation develops, covering language conflict, language discrimination, and how studying the bilingual brain teaches us about our humanity.

"Two Languages, One Mind" with Donatella Caggiano (Milano, Italy)

It was an honor for me to be invited to participate in the inaugural episode of the new podcast "The Design of Return" led by Donatella Caggiano to have a conversation about what it means to have two languages in one mind, and what can we learn from the way the bilingual brain explores, understands, and processes the world and much more!
