Ana T. Pérez-Leroux is Professor of Spanish and Linguistics, and Director of the Cognitive Science Program at the University of Toronto. She received her licenciatura in Modern Languages from the Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo, and her Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts. Her research seeks to understand how children (monolingual and bilingual) learn the syntax and semantics of the smallest and silent components of sentence grammar, including determiners, prepositions, number, tense, mood and aspect, null objects and subjects; and how grammatical complexity emerges from the developmental interaction among the various components. Her current work is on the acquisition of recursive noun phrases.

Prof. Pérez-Leroux teaches courses on language acquisition, Spanish grammar, and bilingualism, and has served in the editorial board of Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, Borealis, Languages, and starting 2019 co-Editor of Revista de Logopedia y Foniatría.
