Personal profile

Biography

My research interest is in investigating how children learn to read, why children have difficulties learning to read, and the cognitive processes involved in reading development. I am originally from Taiwan. I did my masters in Clinical Linguistics, which is a joint degree with three universities: Potsdam University, Germany; Groningen University, The Netherlands, University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy (2008). After that I moved to Australia and completed my PhD with Professor Anne Castles and Professor Lyndsey Nickels (2012). I am currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow and an associate lecturer in the Department of Cognitive Science.
