Cristina Lozano Argüelles is an Assistant Professor of interpreting and bilingualism at the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She investigates how monolinguals and bilinguals understand language and, in particular, the effects of interpreting experience on second language processing.
