Research interests

My previous work focused on the perception and production of prosody and the neural correlates underlying prosodic processing. My current research expand on my previous work to further explore how prosody influences semantic and syntactic processing, using various techniques (e.g., eye-tracking, EEG, MEG and behavioural measures) and in various populations, e.g., the monolinguals (L1), second-language (L2) learners, and hearing-impaired population.  

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
