Dr. Garcia-Sierra is a Research Scientist working on studies of early language acquisition in bilingual infants. Before coming to the Institute he earned a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. He is mainly interested in understanding how knowledge of a second language affects speech perception. In his studies, bilingual and monolingual speakers are assessed behaviorally and electrophysiological (Event Related Potentials) while performing speech categorization tasks in different language contexts. His studies support that bilinguals', but not monolinguals' perception of speech sounds change depending on the language context in which speech sound are presented. Currently he is investigating speech discrimination in infants that are exposed to more than one language.
