Dr. Medina primarily focuses on teaching and mentoring. Her teaching interests focus on the areas of language, cognition, and development, as well as grounding undergraduates in the foundations of psychological research – introductory psychology, research methods, and the use of statistical inference in hypothesis testing. Additionally, Dr. Medina leads a Study Abroad program in the winter semester in Japan which focuses on the psychology of language.
Dr. Medina’s research investigates how children learn their first language – how they comprehend the words and sentences they hear, and learn to put them together into sentences of their own. Her research bridges the disciplines of Linguistics, Cognitive Psychology, and Developmental Psychology.
