Ikerbasque research professor Clara D. Martin (BCBL, Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain) will give a talk on Crosslinguistic links and interference in trilingual language production online via Zoom on Thursday, November 16, at 15:15. You can either join the seminar online via Zoom (please ask Minna Maijala for the link) or come to follow the talk in Arcanum A269.

After obtaining her PhD in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Lyon, France, in 2005, Dr. Martin worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bangor, Wales and the University Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain, where she got expertise in the field of language processing and bilingualism. In 2012, she joined the BCBL as an Ikerbasque investigator, and leader of the research group “Speech and Bilingualism”. The main objective of Dr. Martin’s research group is to explore language perception and production, in native and foreign languages, with a special focus on language interactions in the bilingual mind. Her research group also focuses on language learning, exploring how we learn to perceive and produce novel sounds and words, and how those processes can be optimized. Her research group also works on an ERC large-scale project investigating the impact of orthography on speech sound and word perception and production across modalities (listen, read, speak, type), languages (opaque and transparent orthographies) and populations (monolinguals and bilinguals, with different perceptual and reading skill levels).
