Beatriz Lado received her Licenciatura from the Universitat de València, her M.A. in Linguistics from Louisiana State University, and her Ph.D. in Spanish Linguistics from Georgetown University in 2008. Before coming to Lehman she was an assistant professor at the University of San Diego, where she taught Spanish, applied linguistics, and language teaching methods. Her research, which has appeared in several journals and essay collections, uses computer modeling to explore the intersection of cognitive capacity, feedback, and second-language acquisition.
Specializations: Second language acquisition, second language teaching methodology, cognitive effects of adult language acquisition, and bilingualism.
Research interests: The interaction between external (e.g., type of feedback and degree of explicitness in pedagogical interventions) and internal variables (e.g., prior language experience and cognitive capacity) in the development of a non-primary language; Effects of verbalizing while performing a task to learn a second language (i.e., reactivity); Effects of CMC interaction on language learning; The role of explicit and implicit language policies.
