My research lies at the interface of psychology, education, and genetics. I study children’s reading development and the nature and causes of dyslexia. I am particularly interested in cognitive precursors of reading and genetic and environmental influences on reading.
I am Assistant Professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and a Visiting Academic at the University of Oxford. For more information, please visit http://www.evanbergen.com/.
