Sign language can tell us a lot about human cognition: how languages grow and change over time, how language interfaces with other cognitive systems, and how language exposure (or lack thereof) in early childhood can have long-lasting consequences for subsequent linguistic & cognitive development.  

My research combines basic and translational approaches to these questions, with the ultimate goals of both understanding more about how our minds work as well as offering practical solutions to some of the challenges that deaf children face.
