Personal profile


Dr Chaouch-Orozco holds a PhD in Psycholinguistics from the University of Reading (UK). His research investigates lexical-semantic processes and their implications for broader cognition while considering the impact of cross-cultural factors too. He approaches these questions by combining computational methods such as network science tools and language models with behavioural experiments. His research has contributed to the understanding of semantic memory in bilinguals, among other areas in second language research. His ongoing work continues this investigation, integrating two novel fields of study: the relationship between semantic memory and verbal creativity, and the exploration of emotion concepts across cultures. His work has been published in international peer-reviewed journals, including Studies in Second Language Acquisition, Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, Second Language Research, and PLOS ONE. He is one of the editors of the Cambridge Handbook of Third Language Acquisition, where he also co-authors two chapters.
