Research Interests

The overall goal of my research is to understand the processes underpinning various language activities and the role of language in human cognition. I am particularly interested in investigating the processing of spoken and written Chinese and have done considerable work on the related topics using different methodologies (e.g., ERP, fMRI, eye tracking etc.).  Because of its salient differences in structure from European languages, the Chinese language provides challenging opportunities to explore both language specific processes involved in comprehension and communication, and the universality of theories developed from the study of European languages.
