Research Interests

My research focuses on second language literacy development, particularly the influence of writing system on word recognition and spelling; vocabulary learning; and the influence of individual differences such as working memory, phonological awareness, and foreign language anxiety. While at Pitt, I will be working on a project that uses eye-tracking data to examine English reading processes (reading speed, perceptual span) and word recognition (using lexical priming) among readers who are users of English as a second language.
