My research has two lines of focus: 1) what are the linguistic codes used by deaf readers and 2) what are the functional and organizational differences between second language learners of different language modalities. For the former, I investigate the role of ASL phonology, English phonology, and fingerspelling to understand how deaf individuals might acquire literacy. For the latter, I investigate second language learners of American Sign Language to understand how their first language spoken phonology might influence their second language signed phonology, their interlanguage characteristics, and the functional and connectivity differences in language organization across language modalities.
