I am an assistant professor of second language education and reading development in the Faculty of Education. My current research focuses on the psycholinguistic and cognitive processes involved in reading across the lifespan. Specifically, I am interested in the role of morphological and syntactic awareness in first and second language reading. My work pays particular attention to the measurement of these constructs and how we can understand these complex relationships using statistical modelling. My work also looks at the development and evaluation of evidence-based component skills reading training programs. I teach and supervise in the fields of second language learning and reading development at both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
