- Eva Fernández is Assistant Vice Provost at Queens College and has faculty affiliations in Linguistics & Communication Disorders at Queens and in Linguistics and in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her research focuses on cross-linguistic language processing in monolingual and bilingual populations.
A recent collaborative project with Ricardo de Souza (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais) examines how knowing a second language affects how the first language is processed and represented mentally. Fernández’s work has appeared in publications of the Associaçao Brasileira de Lingüística (ABRALIN), the Journal of Portuguese Linguistics, and in the publication Processamento da Linguagem (Universidade Católica de Pelotas). Fernández is teaching a mini-course on Experimental Methods for the Study of Bilingualism at the Programa de Pós-Graduação em Estudos Lingüísticos, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, in Belo Horizonte, in August 2013.
