I am a first year Ph.D. student in Experimental Psychology at McGill University. I earned my B.A. in Psychology in 2019 at the Autonomous University of Baja California. My thesis examined how code-switching and language background modulated attentional control between Tijuana's bilinguals (L1:Spanish–L2:English) and monolinguals.
My current work attempts to characterize the impact of language experience and other individual differences in the visual and linguistic processing of real-world settings, especially in health-related contexts. I explore how this can also impact the achieved health literacy of an individual.
I am also interested in assessing how individual differences in language background and use modulates bilingual language production/switching in distinct interactional contexts.
