Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My main research focuses on two areas:

Language comprehension - my work in this area aims to understand how we rapidly and accurately understand the meanings of words we read/hear.

Language learning - my work in this area aims to understand how we learn new words or new meanings for words we already know.

I seek converging evidence from behavioural (e.g., eye-tracking, artificial language paradigms) and cognitive neuroscience methods (e.g., EEG).

Current research activities

I am currently interested in:

  • Processing and learning of ambiguous (with Ekaterini Klepounsniotou, University of Leeds; Jenni Rodd, UCL) and semantically rich words (with Melvin Yap, National University of Singapore)
  • Interpretation of quantifiers (with Joanne Ingram, UWS; Ruth Filik, University of Nottingham)
  • Impact of COVID-19 lockdown on cognitive function and wellbeing (with Joanne Ingram, UWS; Chris Hand, Glasgow University; Yuko Hijikata, University of Tsukuba)
  • Graduate employability skills (with Graham Scott; Liz Boyle, UWS)
  • Contribution of language skills to educational attainment

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

EEG/ERP, eye-tracking, web-based experiments, mixed-effects modelling, reaction-time distributional analysis, R, Qualtrics, Gorilla

Desired research direction

The goal of my research is to understand how the language system works in adults. As this research continues I aim to identify what things might go wrong and how to improve comprehension skills in children who may read fluently but struggle to understand the meaning of what they read.

Target collaborative organisations

  • Local schools
  • Local education authorities
  • Speech and language therapists
