liz comElizabeth D. Peña is a Professor in the School of Education at the University of California, Irvine. She is known around the lab as the “slasher” for her ruthless editing skills. When she’s not painting flowers and skulls, she does research focusing on children who are bilingual. Her questions focus on semantic organization in bilinguals with and without language impairment, dynamic assessment to differentiate language impairment from language difference, and development of test measures that can be used  bilingually.
