Research Summary

My research focusses on orthographic learning in children. Being able to recognise words quickly and reliably is a key component of skilled reading. In particular, I am interested in the role meaning and context may play in supporting orthographic learning. I am also investigating the process of acquiring novel vocabulary through reading words in meaningful context. My research makes use of both eye-tracking and lexical competition paradigms.
