Francesca Foppolo


Francesca Foppolo is Researcher in Linguistics in the Department of Psychology at the University of Milano-Bicocca, where she also teaches Psycholinguistics. Her research focuses in particular on the processing of aspects of language related to the semantic/pragmatic interface in typically and atypically developing children, bilinguals and adults.

She employs off-line and on-line techniques, with a particular focus on eye-movement recordings during the on-line processing of linguistic ambiguity. She actively collaborates with her colleagues in the Department of Psychology and with other researchers in Europe and US, in particular: Adrian Staub (UMass at Amherst), Marco Marelli (Ghent University), Carlo Cecchetto and Caterina Donati (CNRS, Paris), Luisa Meroni (Utrecht University), Angeliek Van Hout (University of Groningen), Carla Contemori (University of Texas at El Paso).
