I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Prof. Kate Nation on the research project entitled “Nurturing a lexical legacy: understanding the transition from novice to expert in children’s reading development”. We examine how and what children learn about words via incidental exposure with new words in meaningful text, using both lexical competition and eye movements recordings.
Before coming to Oxford, I did my PhD at University of Southampton, focusing on examining individual differences between adults and children on the encoding of letter identity and position information in silent sentence reading. Specifically, I used eye movement measures to infer when and how letter position encoding occurs during lexical processing in reading, and whether it is similar in adults and children.
My broad research interests are in the field of cognitive psychology, specifically, in language processing, reading development and computational modelling.
