Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am a Speech-Language Pathologists and researcher on language and literacy development with a focus on those who speak Spanish as their native language or who are bilingual (Spanish – English). I received my PhD at Arizona State University, United States.
I joined University of Oxford as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Dr Maggie Snowling in the Department of Experimental Psychology. Specifically, my primary area of interest addresses the critical need for understanding the child- home- and school-based factors that shape Latino children’s early language and literacy achievement in the context of the U.S and Latino America. This area of research will inform our society about factors that influence Latino children’s language and literacy development, and also provide valuable information to create home and school interventions to better promote language and literacy development in this population.
