Professional activities: 

Dr. Annie C. Gilbert is a research associate at the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at McGill University. Her research investigates the impact of individual differences in bilingual experience on speech production and segmentation in L1 and L2 using behavioural and electrophysiological paradigms. She earned her Ph.D. in phonetics at Université de Montréal and competed her postdoctoral work in psychology at McGill University, looking at bilingual speech planning.
