I investigate language development with particular focus on speech perception and babbling in infancy and word learning in infants, children and adults using phonetic, constraints, socio-pragmatic, cross-situational, and sound-symbolic approaches. I am  interested in the factors that influence language development such as exposure and experience with language, cross-linguistic influences and lexical tone perception, learning one vs two languages (bilingualism), hearing impairment, and infant-directed speech.
