I am interested in knowing more about the role of pragmatic and prosodic components of communication in second language (L2) interactional proficiency, and how individual differences (social processing skills, context of learning, etc.) have an impact on this. I am especially interested in utilizing neuroimaging techniques to better understand how L2 learners with different characteristics process pragmatic and prosodic information in the language they are learning. This research can help devise strategies to improve L2 learners' interactional development.
