Thèmes de recherche

My research focuses on comparing morphosyntactic development of French in different contexts of acquisition, including child L2 acquisition and acquisition in contexts of pathology, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and specific language impairment (SLI). I'm particularly interested in exploring the impact of computational complexity in language development.
