My research is concerned with the processes underlying the development of second languages among non-native learners and in particular among learners that have reached their final stage of language development. My main focus is on accounting for the varying levels of success reached by learners of similar or different linguistic profiles because this has important implications for our understanding about the mental and cognitive processes underpinning the learning process.
