Maria Mercedes Arredondo, Ph.D.


I am a National Science Foundation and UBC Killam postdoctoral research fellow, working under the guidance of Drs. Janet F. Werker and Richard N. Aslin. I am affiliated with the Infant Studies Centre at the University of British Columbia and Haskins Laboratories.

In my research, I investigate how bilingual infants and children become proficient in their languages, which cognitive and brain mechanisms underlie successful language acquisition, and how bilinguals use linguistic information to succeed in school and learn from their diverse socio-cultural environments.

I received my PhD in Developmental Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
