Research Interests

My current research focuses on the association between laterality, or handedness, and learning. More specifically, my work aims to investigate the prevalence and heritability of handedness in Chinese, and the connection between handedness and children reading, writing and math performance. I am pursuing three different questions. The first question concerns differences between two different pairs of handedness groups (namely, left vs right and consistent vs. inconsistent) in their learning skill and literacy development. The second question concerns whether hand preference or relative hand skill can predict children's reading, writing and math performance. The third question focuses on whether those with handedness anomalies show deficits in their development.
