Ioulia is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. As a developmental cognitive neuroscientist, she studies the effects of bilingualism on children's language, literacy, and brain development. Her work involves questions of bilingual and cross-linguistic effects in typical language development and in children with language-based learning impairments such as dyslexia. To study bilingualism, she uses a variety of experimental and neuroimaging approaches, especially those involving fNIRS neuroimaging. She welcomes cross-linguistic and cross-cultural collaborations and students interested in the Bilingual Brain. Ioulia's laboratory's website at the University of Michigan provides further insight into her work.
