Diana is a project coordinator for The International Bilingual Education (IBE) project (Canada, China & the Netherlands). Her research focuses on the accessibility of language immersion programs for exceptional and multilingual students in Canada. Diana is especially interested in working on an assessment and intervention method which will disentangle deficits due to language disability from language deficits due to multilingualism. Her SSHRC-funded dissertation project examines the effect of COVID-19 and socioeconomic status on the equitable access to French Immersion programs.
