I am a member of the Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behavior.
My research uses methods from experimental psychology to investigate visual and cognitive mechanisms that underlie reading and language understanding across the lifespan and in different languages and cultures. Much of this research involves the study of eye movements while reading and includes research on questions relating to the neuroscience of reading, cross-linguistic studies of reading, language development and aging.
