Maria Garraffa is Assistant Professor at Heriot- Watt University (Edinburgh) where she teaches and does research on Language Acquisition and impairment. In collaboration with leading scholars, some of her key achievements include the development of the first UK psychological test to assess reading in adults with language disorders and a model to investigate vulnerable aspects of language in children with language impairment and adults suffering from stroke. Developed in parallel with a core interest for language impairment, her research on multilingualism addresses the effects of early second language learning in immigrants and people speaking heritage languages. She is the director of the Language Across the Life Span lab, based in Edinburgh and Malaysia (https://langlife.hw.ac.uk).
