When people speak, they produce 2-3 words every second, selecting each word over thousands of alternatives. I am interested in how speakers do this so quickly and accurately. Using behavioral and EEG experiments, my research addresses questions such as: Which language production stages require domain-general cognitive resources, and how do these requirements affect our word choices? How do bilinguals decide which language to use, and what cognitive mechanisms make it easy for them to switch between languages? Topics like these will help us to understand how cognitive systems such as central attention and executive control interact to promote speaking.
