  • Head of Octogone-Lordat


I am Professor at the Language Sciences Department of the University of Toulouse 2, head of the Interdisciplinary Research Unit Octogone-Lordat (EA 4156) and coordinator of the Master in Language Sciences “Linguistics, Cognition, Communication”. My research focuses on neuro- and psycholinguistic aspects of language processing in bilingual subjects with special attention to extreme situations such as L1 attrition, simultaneous interpreting and acquired language disorders. Presently, I am particularly interested in the role of executive functions in the control of languages in multilingual subjects.
