Applied Developmental Psychology: Bilingualism and Executive Function, Neural Mechanism of Multiple Language Acquisition

My (pronounced /mee/) is a second-year MA student in Dr. Winsler’s lab. She graduated from Liberty University in 2018 with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Photography. 

She is generally interested in neural mechanisms of bilingualism and language acquisition. Her Master's thesis focuses on whether early bilingualism is associated with student enrollment in foreign language courses in middle school and high school. Eventually, My aspires to pursue a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience to further study the relationship between cortical structures and different language processes by applying different imaging techniques.
