Biography:

Dr. Jackson received her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializing in Germanic linguistics and second language acquisition. In her research she uses both behavioral (e.g., reaction times, eye-tracking, comprehension and production tasks) and neurophysiological (EEG/ERP) research methods to investigate how first and second language speakers produce and comprehend information in both their first and second languages. She is primarily interested in the cognitive mechanisms that underlie second language acquisition and second language processing, with an eye towards how such research can inform foreign language instruction. She has published articles in a variety of linguistics and applied linguistics journals including Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, Applied Psycholinguistics, The Modern Language Journal, and Language, Cognition and Neuroscience.
