Lilia Ruiz Debbe has been Director of the Spanish Language Program at the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature since 1997. With a strong foundation in the cognitive epistemology of Piaget at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, Lilia Ruiz-Debbe did her first research on the processes of cognitive and linguistic processes of Spanish language structures. At present, her research involves Interlanguage Studies and Second Language Acquisition and their implications for methodology in classroom situations. This research addresses how theoretical frameworks affect the application of research findings to the teaching of Spanish Second Language, particularly in aspectual tenses and their L2 acquisition.
