Alicia's overall research agenda is informed by the fields of linguistics, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience and focuses on investigating the set of individual factors that contribute to proficient bi/multilingualism as well as on elucidating the ways in which the (becoming) bi/multilingual experience impacts linguistic, socio-affective, and neurocognitive function.
Her areas of specialization are adult second/third language acquisition and heritage speaker bilingualism. She also has a secondary specialization in the acquisition and processing of (morpho)syntax using psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic methods.
